This preview of the upcoming film  Footsteps on the Wind tells the story of animated character Noor and her little brother Joseph as they find a way to build their future despite unimaginable perils, much like some 400,000 unaccompanied refugee children worldwide at this very moment. The film is set to the refugee-inspired song by singer songwriter Sting, "Inshallah". The full film will be released in 2021 following its international festival run. It will be available on multiple platforms to be streamed and shared for trauma storytelling workshops. Its narrative blends harsh reality and tragedy with resilience as we follow the children’s magical imagination through loss and recovery.

In an exclusive interview, world  photographer Steve McCurry gives a candid take on his three decades documenting stories of forced displacement.

Singer songwriter Sting shares his experience writing two refugee-inspired songs. He shares insight into his creative process and why he uses his craft to speak up about topics that are close to his heart.
