I Am Rohingya: A Genocide in Four Acts chronicles the journey of fourteen refugee youth who take to the stage (in front of a live audience) to re-enact their families’ harrowing experiences in Burma and beyond; before, during, and immediately after the escalation of military violence in their native homeland, Rakhine state; their unforgiving escape by foot and by boat to makeshift camps in Bangladesh; and their eventual resettlement in the strikingly unfamiliar Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario.
There, the children resolve to raise awareness for a conflict that has increasingly resembled a cruel and systematic ethnic cleansing campaign.
