The animated film Lamya’s Poem (2023) is an inspiring and timely tale about a twelve-year-old Syrian refugee girl named Lamya, who has a remarkable talent for poetry. Set against the backdrop of sweeping social change, Lamya’s journey highlights the transformative and cathartic power of art, demonstrating how it can serve as a source of solace and self-discovery.

Filmmaker Sam Kadi will join moderator Juan Campo (Religious Studies, UCSB) for a post-screening discussion of Lamya’s Poem.
