Local interpreters were key to the US war effort, but now many face danger in their countries because of their affiliation. This is the story of how they are rebuilding their lives, told through a chain-smoking Iraqi codenamed "Phillip Morris" who was able to make it to the US with the help of an American soldier he befriended during his deployment, an Afghan called Malik who is still working as an active interpreter at the US base in Kabul despite threats to his life, and another Afghan named Mujtaba who fled with his family as refugees to Turkey.
Andrés is a public radio producer, journalist and documentary filmmaker. He produced a series for StoryCorps, recording the stories of military personnel who served in post 9/11 conflicts. Andres is a former NPR/Above the Fray fellow, where he reported stories from Cameroon, including the refugee spillover from the Central African Republic. He’s a former producer for Latino USA and his stories appeared on NPR’s Morning Edition, Weekend Edition, PBS and print publications across the US. Sofian Khan is the founder of Capital K Pictures — a New York-based production company focusing on documentary work, where he works as a director, producer and cinematographer.
