On September 2, 2015, a photo of a little boy’s body on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea went viral, alerting the world to the cold, devastating reality of the Syrian refugee crisis. The boy’s name was Alan Kurdi, nephew of author and refugee advocate Tima Kurdi. Discussing The Boy on the Beach with journalist Kathryn Gretsinger, Kurdi takes us back to the streets of Damascus to follow a family’s flight from the war-torn borders of Syria to the suburbs of Vancouver, and their persistent search for safe harbour in a shattering time of war.
Presented by the Vancouver Writers Fest with support from the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association and the Vancouver Courier.
