An Honest Portrayal of the Life of a Refugee Volunteer
9 October 2017 | by annabellayarovskySee all my reviews

First let me be honest, this film is shot in a documentary style immersion, so if this subject matter is not in any way of interest to you then yes you will likely find it boring.

Now, to the negative reviews! "White Savior" really? YOU HAVE NO CLUE WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT! Speaking from years of personal experience, Refugee and Disaster Relief Volunteer, First Responder, and Crisis Area Management Volunteer and not just Africa, Three other continents with (gasp) White people who need help as well! THIS IS A VERY REALISTIC Depiction OF OUR LIVES! Ignorance doesn't even begin to cover the absurdity of you're comments and reviews. MOST of the volunteers are not even Caucasian, we don't just volunteer in war torn countries in Africa (i.e. Bosnian genocide, Ukrainian Occupatiin, Chechneya, Paraguay) and we come from all over the World, speaking every language known to man.

You think we work days at a time without sleep, often not eating, putting our lives in danger every day because we want to be "saviors" LOL? Or wait you think we get paid? We get glory? Our family's support our choice not have a family or relationships, returning home for brief moments and try to reconnect with a world we can't Understand anymore? I'm sure if this film was based in Iraq with what you deem "the real hero's" to be, you would be praising your strong Marines right? The people that get paid a nice hefty sum of money to shoot big guns at civilians in a country that never instigated a war so that the US government can get rich off Weapons Manufacturers Payouts?

NO WE Don't GET ANY MEDALS! We don't get our names in the paper, we pay our own money to Volunteer, and we don't get buried in Arlington Cemetery. We are lucky if our body is sent back home and we often don't care. BECAUSE WE ARE NOT HEROS! HEROS ARE THE 10 yr old Boys that hold on to life with 4 bullet wounds so they can look after the smaller siblings that survived after his family was murdered. HEROS are the 8 yr old girls that have been raped repeatedly by grown men, trying so hard to make sense of what's left of their youth and innocence so they can help other girls like them.

So unless you actually have some experience walking a day in my shoes, or one minute in theirs, I suggest you stick to reviewing "American Sniper"
