Dreaming in Somali

Dreaming in Somali follows the lives of four Somali Americans in the Twin Cities – a police officer during a controversy, an imam and teacher trying to improve educational opportunities for youth, a union leader fighting for better wages and working conditions, and a women’s health organizer promoting self-care and prevention in the Somali community. By depicting Somali Americans’ challenges and triumphs, the film brings to light the complex issues New Americans across the US are facing where changing demographics often engender fear and foster misconceptions about refugees, immigrants and Muslims.
