Sat, 10 December 2016 – The Ismaili Centre Toronto, Lower Level- Activity Room, 49 Wynford Drive, Toronto, ON M3C 1K1, Canada

Clouds Over Sidra is the story of a 12 year-old girl who has lived in Jordan’s Za’atari Refugee Camp since the summer of 2013. The film follows Sidra to her school, her temporary bedroom, and even to a girls-only soccer match.

Clouds Over Sidra is the first-ever film shot in virtual reality for the United Nations. The film uses the virtual reality medium to generate greater empathy and new perspectives on people living in conditions of great vulnerability — and to inspire the message of hope among not only the millions displaced, but also those motivated to act.
