When we (Christine Chen and I) decided to make “Ya Albi,” a film about a Syrian refugee, we knew that we may be dealing with a topic that could be political or controversial.

We just wanted to make a good film about the human condition through the eyes of an immigrant that was relevant to today’s world without any political agenda. ...
