This series of films, funded by  MTS TV, chronicles the Canadian immigration settlement process as experienced by a family of Bhutanese refugees. The first film is an observational portrait of one family’s first week in Canada, beginning the moment they land at the airport. The subsequent films in the series (Arrival 2 will be released shortly), will show how each family member is evolving in their adopted land. Generational differences throughout the integration process, employment challenges and culture shock are some of the themes explored.  [if !supportLineBreakNewLine] [endif]EndFragment
The series  is being used by various settlement agencies, sent to refugee camps abroad, and used by universities. It serves as a tool to help other refugees understand what they will go through before they arrive in Canada and to help other Canadians gain a deeper understanding of the immigration and refugee process. This series is available as a free download from this website. EndFragment
