Presented as part of the 2022 Waterloo Region Migration Film Festival.

Aleem Karmali is an independent documentary filmmaker and writer from Edmonton. His latest film is Thrown into Canada: The Settlement of Asian Refugees from Uganda, which marks the 50th anniversary of Idi Amin’s expulsion of South Asians from Uganda, and explores the first major movement of non-European refugees to Canada. Through his company Crescent Productions, Aleem’s films generally explore historical subjects relating to the intersections of diversity, culture and religion, with a particular focus on the contributions of Muslim cultures and civilizations to the world, as well as reflecting on pluralism in Canadian society.
