We Became Fragments is a short documentary about film about a displaced Syrian teenager coming of age in Winnipeg, Canada.
After losing his mother and four siblings in a bombing that left him injured, Ibraheem and his father make a new life despite the heartbreak of leaving their home behind. The film follows Ibraheem through his first week of high school in Winnipeg.
It’s a story about loss, resilience, and one young man’s identity as he adapts to a new country while his home is at war.
The project was the winning student pitch at the New York Times Op-Docs, Tribeca Film Institute and Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting Pitch Competition.
The film is supported by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and is currently in post-production.
