We made this film to spread resilience. We want survivors to know that healing is possible, and we want to inspire people everywhere to break the silence and oppression that torture imposes.
We also have a tangible goal: Making sure every refugee is met with compassion as they make their way in the country they now call home. That’s why we are screening TRANSCENDENCE with front-line service workers who help asylum seekers through immigration, mental health, social services, and other fields — we want to make sure these providers can recognize the signs of trauma and respond with compassion.
