Aleem Karmali, Producer/Director – Home Away From Home: The Return of Ismaili Muslims to Uganda

We have featured Aleem Karmali before at Ismailimail.   Aleem’s most recent short film is Home Away From Home: The Return of Ismaili Muslims to Uganda.

Aleem KarmaliHome Away From Home: The Return of Ismaili Muslims to Uganda is a documentary film that profiles four members of the Ismaili Muslim community who have returned to Kampala after being forced to leave Uganda as refugees in 1972 during the Asian expulsion by then-President Idi Amin. It looks at the reasons for their return after having settled down in countries such as Canada and the United Kingdom, and examines their feelings about being back and the challenges that they have faced since returning. It also seeks to understand why members of this particular community have been relatively successful at getting back onto their feet after losing everything as refugees.
