“Salam Neighbor is a beautifully crafted story that delivers a powerful message. It will leave you touched and inspired to take action. This film is a must-see.” – UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR)
In front of a sold out Washington D.C. theater, we premiered our new film Salam Neighbor for the very first time. Terrifying yes, but as the end credits rolled to five rounds of teary-eyed applause, we knew this film was something special. We cannot express enough thanks to the family of talented artists and producers it took make this film possible, especially our fellow producers at 1001 Media (Mohab & Salam). Lastly, thank you to RYOT, UNHCR, Save the Children, the Int’l Rescue Committee, US State Dept., and AFI DOCS Film Festival for making this event such a success.
Coming off of the big world premiere, we’re moving forward as quickly as possible to share this film with you guys — our friends and viewers around the world. Stay tuned for updates, but in the meantime, if you might be interested in hosting a screening of the new film in your community this winter, please email Zach@livingonone.org.

“On a subject too often discussed in terms of numbers, Zach and Chris capture the human element of one of the greatest refugee crises of this generation.”
