One of our former colleagues here at KGET, Annie DiGrazia, is now traveling the world and bringing attention to the refugee crisis in Europe.
This morning on Sunrise, Annie and her co-director, Irene Hollebranse, joined Maddie and Alex to talk about their documentary project, “Asylum Seekers: Moria.”
Annie and Irene spent months living alongside thousands of refugees on the Greek island of Lesbos, four miles off the coast of Turkey. A place that used to attract tourists, is overwhelmed by the refugee crisis, impacted by war, according to DiGrazia.
The two will be presenting part of their documentary along with an art exhibit this weekend at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church Saturday night at 5:30 p.m. St. Paul’s is located at 2216 17th Street.
Public is invited to attend. Proceeds benefit their documentary and help spread awareness about the refugee crisis.
