The Cleveland Council on World Affairs and the Refugee Services Collaborative of Greater Cleveland present a screening of the documentary The Refugees of Shangri-La.

This documentary follows the refugees from the Kingdom of Bhutan as they abandon their 20 year hopes of returning to a paradise lost and resettle to America.

In the shadow of the remote Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan’s lofty ideal of Gross National Happiness hide 107,000 refugees, who were pushed out of their country as their peaceful kingdom turned against them. After twenty years living in bamboo huts and barbed wire encampments in Nepal; the ‘Refugees of Shangri-la’ break a solution-less cycle and brave a new course… to seek a future in a place called America.
