Zarefah Baroud creates documentary “Stories from the Homeland”


Telling the story of her own family, Zarefah Baroud created a documentary film about the displacement of Palestinians, an event they refer to as the Nakba - Arabic for “catastrophe.”  Baroud undertook this endeavor as her undergraduate capstone project while studying Media & Communication Studies (’19) at UW Bothell.  

“Being aware and educated about my family’s history is the inspiration for a lot that I do,” Baroud said. “Through this film, I’ve become more empathetic to other nationalities that struggle with a similar past.” Now earning her M.A. in Policy Studies, Baroud plans to continue working in media for organizations that advocate for human rights.
