Radical Hospitality

Directed by Amanda Chemeche

Radical Hospitality documents the experiences of a displaced Southeast Asian community as they adapt themselves to a new home. This film follows a group of refugees as they are inducted into an Old Order Mennonite church in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The Karen, an ethnic minority group living on the Thai-Myanmese border, have fought a protracted civil war against the military government of Myanmar for nearly eight decades in hopes of creating their own nation. Fleeing persecution but looking to maintain their culture and identity, the community finds an unlikely partner in Habecker Church, home to an aging congregation in rural Pennsylvania. Set against a backdrop of anti-refugee protests, heated political debate, and the Lancaster countryside, the two groups strive to create a new community as they seek common ground between their radically distinct cultures.
