What happens to American war resisters who seek refuge in Canada? Resisters from wars in Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan speak out in this award-winning documentary. Safe Haven sheds light on the realities and myths of Canada as a welcoming country for those who need protection.
Safe Haven is directed by Lisa Molomot, a filmmaker whose work has aired on PBS and has been seen at film festivals all over the U.S., including Sundance, SXSW, New Directors, New Films and DOC NYC. It is produced by Dr. Alison Mountz, professor at Wilfrid Laurier University, and author of The Death of Asylum: Hidden Geographies of the Enforcement Archipelago.
Director: Lisa Molomot
