ABOUT THE FILM

 

WE BECAME FRAGMENTS is a short documentary about Syrian teenager Ibraheem Sarhan as he comes of age in Winnipeg, Canada. 

After losing his mother and four siblings in a bombing that left him injured, Ibraheem and his father make a new life despite the heartbreak of leaving their home behind. 

The film follows Ibraheem through his first week of high school in Winnipeg. It's a story about loss, resilience, and one young man’s identity as he adapts to a new country while his home is at war.

Ibraheem is one of 2.5 million displaced Syrian children coming of age in countries far from their home. We hope his story will elevate their narratives and inspire change.
