If You Become My Friend
Short Documentary Directed by Jennifer Potts

Capturing history: Four family’s journeys from Afghanistan to Worcester, MA. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Worcester Arts Council, which was made possible with American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Funding from the City of Worcester. These stories were recorded for historical purposes and capture the diversity of the Afghan languages and cultures, as well as experiences. My team spent one day with each of the families, capturing their stories, as well as some of their cultures and traditions. Using an interpreter from the Afghan community, we learned about their journeys to the US, as well as their lives before coming to the US.  Each family graciously welcomed us into their homes, made a beautiful meal for us, and openly shared their stories with us. The film was screened at Clark University on April 2, 2024.
