Event Description: 
Howard Center presents a film screening and discussion with documentary filmmaker Mira Niagolova "Welcome to Vermont" offers a nuanced view of lives of forcibly displaced people once they have achieved their ultimate desire to resettle in the US and "live the American dream." The documentary raises questions about identity, assimilation, and diversity and explores how the adaptation process differs from one ethnic group to another, from one individual to the next. -Mira Productions website
