Raeshma Razvi


The Global Action Project, a New York City based non-governmental organization trains youth in media technologies (mainly video production), encouraging young people to use their media as a means of discussing (and acting on) local and global issues.


Raeshma Razvi and other members of GAP presented two films, “One Family” and “Picture a Story.” The films tell the stories of twelve refugee teenagers from Sierra Leone, Bosnia, Burundi and Serbia who have weathered war, the loss of family and friends, and geographical and cultural displacement.  After reaching their ‘resettlement’ location of New York City, they find themselves coming together to share their stories and create media in a post 9/11 landscape.
