Stoughton High School Event

From executive producer Malala Yousafzai and director Joshua Seftel comes ‘Stranger at the Gate,’ a 2023 Academy Award nominee for Best Documentary Short Film that tells one story of how an act of compassion can stop an act of hate.

An Afghan refugee named Bibi Bahrami — and the members of her Indiana mosque — encounter a U.S. Marine, Richard “Mac” McKinney, who has a secret plot to bomb their mosque. But when they come face to face, the Marine’s plan takes an unexpected turn toward grace, transformation and hope.

Students at Stoughton High School were able to talk to both and ask questions in a whole school event.
