Imagine what it would be like to be a refugee. Alicia Keys does just that in Let Me In. The twist is that they’re fleeing to Mexico to reach safety… from California.

“There are more refugees in the world today than at any point in history. And half of them are children. LET ME IN is a cinematic experience which reimagines the refugee crisis as if it was happening on America’s shores. Written and directed by Jonathan Olinger, this tale of survival and the remarkable power of the human spirit is inspired by the stories of real refugees.” ~ Alicia Keys Youtube Channel

“Alicia Keys just released a new short film, Let Me In, in time with World Refugee Day. The action-packed short film brings the seemingly distant refugee crisis to America. In the 11 minute-long video, which Keys made in support of her organization We Are Here with Global Citizen partners Oxfam, CARE, and War Child, Keys and her children are seen fleeing conflict and violence in L.A. for the safer lands of Mexico.” ~ Meghan Werft
