As a quiet meditation, “On Exile” follows the moving testimonies of Muslim refugees from Syria, Iraq, Somalia and Sudan, resettled in the US. This unconventional documentary film creates intimate psychological portraits, restores the refugees’ voices, and allows them full personal and political agency.
