Memories of Mogadishu Online Documentary Film Premiere – May 25th, 2020

On behalf of the Memories of Mogadishu initiative, we are pleased to share our latest project, the Memories of Mogadishu short documentary film.  

How do Somali diaspora remember or reimagine this once cosmopolitan city? 

“Mogadishu is a city that exists in the stories of its inhabitants, now displaced in various parts of the world, and only thanks to their memories can it be reconstructed.” – Shirin Ramzanali Fazel, Far from Mogadishu

This short documentary offers an intimate portrait and unprecedented glimpse into the lives (past and present) of those who have been forcibly displaced by political instability and conflict. Ultimately, this film reveals the realities of how members of the Somali diaspora in Canada reconstruct and reconcile their memories of a once cosmopolitan city. 

Join us for the online film premiere on May 25th at the Memories of Mogadishu YouTube Channel
