Camp Pathfinder, a summer camp in the remote Canadian wilderness, is a place where generations of boys from Canada and the U.S. have come to camp, fish, canoe, and hike. Inspired by Canada’s intake of asylum seekers and the heartbreaking images of war-torn Iraq and Syria, the camp now plays host to young refugee boys, giving them the chance to heal and to begin to build a new life. Directed by two-time Academy Award® winner Barbara Kopple.

As an immigrant myself I found this documentary so heartwarming and incredibly well made. I had my box of tissues right by my side. I am a teacher and psychologist so I know what trauma can do to people, especially children and I think that the resilience of these handful of kids is amazing. I absolutely LOVED this movie and will probably watch it again as a true 'FEEL GOOD' flick!
