We Were Here is an original documentary series created in support of World Refugee Day. Three short films, The Musicians, The Toymaker and The Permaculturist, were created to explore the courage and individuality of refugees from around the world and tell their stories of hope away from home.

This was a fantastic project that we had the privilege to work on with the wonderful team at Uncommon, Leif and the UN Refugee Agency. All three episodes are available to stream only on Youtube.
