More about the film
M2D is based on the humorous multimedia talk that Ben produced, examining refugee resettlement in the United States. Weaving together information about the refugee crisis, personal narrative, and pre-recorded interviews, Ben argues for expanded refugee resettlement on national security grounds.
Through a series of humanizing—and often humorous—interviews, he introduces the audience to five young Syrian refugees living in Germany, as well as a retired marine working in human rights advocacy. Their struggles, hopes, and passionate advocacy come into even sharper focus as Ben recounts the story of his grandfather, a German-Jewish refugee who fled the Nazis just prior to World War II.
