"From Damascus to Chicago: One Family's Story," a short documentary by Medill students Colleen Cassingham and Alex Lederman made Editor's Pick on The Atlantic: "A dance studio in Chicago is working with young Syrians who have recently resettled to the city. In this short documentary, Fold, Embrace, Expand: From Damascus to Chicago, we meet Akram and Retaj, who are 7 and 10 years old, and follow them in their dance classes and transition to the city. The film also profiles their parents, and touches on the difficulties of beginning a new life far from what was home."
