Bay Area filmmaker Tom Shepard’s powerful new documentary tells the untold stories of LGBTQ refugees and asylum seekers who have fled intense persecution in their home countries and are attempting to resettle in the United States. The film follows four new arrivals, each of whom have escaped potential peril in their native countries for being different. They’ve landed in the purported “gay mecca” of San Francisco yet, even here, building a new life in an adopted nation is a precarious undertaking. As the current Administration continues to restrict immigrants and drastically cut the flow of refugees and asylum seekers, Unsettled is a timely look at the challenges and perseverance of four refugees on a quest for a better tomorrow.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT TICKETING:
Community Cinema tickets are still free, but you must have a ticket to attend the screening. Please select the “Print-at-Home” option when ordering your ticket online, and then either print your ticket at home to bring with you, or show it on your mobile device at the door.
Please arrive early for all Community Cinema screenings. Since this is a free screening, we experience many no-shows and must overbook the theater in order to compensate. Your ticket will not guarantee you a seat if we are already full when you arrive.
If you register for a screening but find you are unable to attend, we would be extremely grateful if you would email us at [email protected] to cancel your reservation so we can offer your seat to another patron (and help us pare down the number of aforementioned no-shows).
Thanks for your support of Community Cinema!
