Highlighting the essence of nine locals who proudly call Charlottesville their home, Know Your Neighbor offers insight into the lives of refugees who escaped from war. From SIVs (special immigrant visa holders) who fought alongside U.S. forces in conflict, immigrants who chose to begin life anew in America, and an undocumented immigrant whose days are filled with trepidation, these neighbors discuss their lives in a manner that inherently forges connection and curiosity. While celebrating the multifaceted fabric of Charlottesville’s community, the ways in which we are more alike than dissimilar is revealed. Discussion with director Aaron Farrington, assistant director Abel Okugawa, Ola ManSour, and Rahim Hamid, moderated by producer Kari Miller
