This Is My Home Now (2015)

About the Film

This is My Home Now explores the lives of four youths from three Montagnard immigrant families who have fled their homelands in Southeast Asia to forge a new future in North Carolina. There are up to 20,000 Montagnards in America from many different tribes. They live among us, but are often not understood or recognized for their place in U.S. history. The subjects of the film, Mai Butrang, Philip Krongkon and sisters H De and H Lysa Nie, grapple with questions about self-identity, about losing their cultural heritage and about the role of faith. Experiences of hardship and of remarkable support on their journey make for a compelling story whose themes are universal.
