Refugees of New York is a multimedia series about three people who fled their countries to find a new home in New York: a Guatemalan woman, a young Russian philosopher and a Syrian journalist. New York City is known as a welcoming place for immigrants and refugee seekers. But at the same time that they do find protection, they also struggle through long legal processes that may last for years. They experience cultural shock while adjusting to their new way of life. This story focuses on the personal experiences that brought these people from different nationalities and backgrounds, and aims to show how they keep their traditions and hopes alive. How do they live and what are their dreams?
