What makes the film “Jiyan: La vie” so special? This film was made by a filmmaker who worked intimately with refugees and this experience inspired him to make a film about their lives. yes, it is fictionalized, but in every way this story is true to life about the challenges that people face when forced to flee a war-torn nation. Yet the story is told with humor, authenticity, and even features a touch of romance. I personally cannot imagine a mature, intelligent adult not appreciating this breathtaking film.
