I Am Rohingya: A Genocide in Four Acts chronicles the journey of fourteen Rohingya youth who take to the stage in order to depict their families' harrowing experiences in Burma and beyond; before, during, and immediately after the escalation of military violence in their native Rakhine state; their unforgiving escape by foot and by boat to makeshift refugee camps in Bangladesh; and their eventual resettlement in the unfamiliar Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario.
Rohingya Canadian youth, many of whom came as refugees to Canada, have been taking the lead in pushing for justice for their people in Myanmar and Bangladesh.
Rallies, fundraisers, and awareness raising events have been organized across Canada, often with young members of Canada's Rohingya community participating as speakers.
Rohingya youth, some members of the team originally involved in creating the play I Am Rohingya, co-founded the Canadian Rohingya Development Initiative, an organization which has been meeting with goverment officials in Canada and abroad to raising awareness about the plight of the Rohingya.
Ahmed Hashim Ullah is a Rohingya refugee living in Kitchener-Waterloo. He and a number of other Rohingya refugee youth worked with Yusuf Zine to develop the play I Am Rohingya. They are successfully crowdfunded to raise enough funds to develop the story behind the making of the play into a documentary.
