Extra­credit  3.29.16  (1) surprising, (2) beautiful/poetic, (3) complicated, (4) troubling and (5) infuriating in the movie. 1. Although it was very brief, it was beautiful for me to get a glimpse inside the Greek Orthodox  church. I am Greek Orthodox, and the church service shown in the film is nearly identical to the  that of the Greek Orthodox church that I attend. The Greek Orthodox church shown in the film  appears to have the same readings in Arabic and Greek that I hear at my church. Those who carry  the same traditions seemingly remain pretty similar regardless of distance, and I find that  remarkable.  2. The narrator briefly mentions a “No man’s land” belonging to the UN. I find it surprising that the  UN would seal off or separate a section of land and prohibit people from either living there or  simply traveling across it. It opens my eyes to the effects of war, and how many people were  driven from their homes. The number of refugees appears to be continuously increasing, and it  says a great deal about just how many there are if the UN had to inhibit them from traveling to  certain places simply because there were too many of them.  3. I find it infuriating that I am missing a good deal of what is occurring in the film because the  subtitles are difficult to read. They either pass too quickly, the font is too small, or the white  words are difficult to decipher over the background. It’s likely that I have missed a lot of  information in the film, simply because I cannot read the subtitles.  4. This film opened my eyes to all the different places that refugees have sought refuge in, and just  how troubling this crisis is. I knew that many of them had fled to Lebanon, Jordan, and various  countries in Europe, but I didn’t know they were also spreading out over the Mediterranean, in  countries such as Cyprus and likely Bahrain and Kuwait. It’s sad to see that many of these  refugees do not have a say in where they end up; their primary goal is to seek immediate refuge  and find safety for them and their families.  5. It’s complicated for me to decide what is the right thing for affected countries to do regarding the  refugee crisis. By this I mean­ how welcoming should they be? Is it wrong for people to resent  refugees for flooding into their country? It was interesting to hear the opinion of a man from  Cyprus on the refugee crisis. He appears frustrated that there are so many refugees pouring into  the country, which, in his opinion, is too small to handle such a sudden increase in population.  His fear for Cyprus seems to inhibit his sympathy for these people, as he believes that the  refugees do not have a real need, and instead, they will likely cause problems for Cyprus. Another man believes that Cyprus is being invaded by foreigners, and he feels like an alien in his own  country because he feels as though he cannot even speak Greek. He compares the refugees to  bugs, in that they are coming and “laying eggs” everywhere, taking over the country.
