This film is important … because it shatters the idea that there isn’t anything that one can do, that the problem is too big.

- Gary Ross, Director of The Hunger Games

Salam Neighbor is a beautifully crafted story that delivers a powerful message. It will leave you touched and inspired to take action. This film is a must-see.

[Chris and Zach] don't just make documentaries. They make themselves part of the story.


Salam Neighbor allows all of us that glimpse into the lives of the people fleeing the violence in Syria and what’s at stake if we fail to respond.

The film connected and moved students, not only to the point where they donated, but to where they were so engaged they couldn’t hold back their questions.

On a subject too often discussed in terms of numbers, Zach and Chris capture the human element of one of the greatest refugee crises of this generation.
