A poetic account of the forced exile and refugee experience of a Colombian actor now living in Canada.

More than one woman’s story, El Refugio de Freidel | Freidel’s Refuge is an account of an artist’s journey and her craft. It is socially engaged, daring and deeply profound.  It gives the typical immigration tale a real spin and challenges us to see our immigrant and refugee population in a new light.  Most of all, it is about turning a difficult experience into a positive outcome, and of respecting the many things we need to do in order to survive; and in doing so, discovering and conquering new lands within ourselves.
