“Dalya’s Other Country” tells the nuanced story of members of a family displaced by the Syrian conflict who are remaking themselves after the parents separate. Effervescent teen Dalya goes to Catholic high school and her mother, Rudayna, enrolls in college as they both walk the line between their Muslim values and the new world in which they find themselves.
The film is presented with the Oscar-nominated short film “4.1 Miles.” Follow a day in the life of Kyriakos Papadopoulos, a captain in the Greek coast guard who is caught in the middle of the refugee crisis in which Europe is embroiled. He and his crew attempt to save thousands of migrants from drowning in the Aegean Sea.
