*The Healing Portraits Project is a documentary that features three refugees to Canada: Zainab, Basel and Sherwan. After being paired with an artist, and under the care of an art therapist, each one of them tells us their personal story.
As we hear the refugees’ stories of struggle to flee their torn countries, but also of settlement in Canada, we see each artist creating a portrait for the refugee. A portrait inspired by the story they’ve heard, which carries with it an intention of welcoming and healing.
