Centering the Stories of Refugee Women: Nobel Nok Dah Film and Discussion Guide for Teachers & Refugee Service Providers

Nobel Nok Dah
Film synopsis:
NOBEL NOK DAH offers an intimate view into the lives of three refugee women from Myanmar (Burma), whose migratory paths cross in Thailand and eventually meet when they resettle to central New York. Drawing upon methods of feminist oral history and ethno-fiction, the film traces glimmers of subjectivity that complicate any singular narrative of the refugee experience. As camera movements follow the textures of everyday life and work, a weave of sensorial fragments immerses audiences in women's narratives of self, place, and belonging.
The film will soon be available for check out from our lending library, and a discussion guide featuring workshop outlines and discussion questions for multiple audiences as well as multimedia stories to accompany the film will be available for download on our website. Stay tuned for updates!
