About the Film
An Afghan refugee named Bibi Bahrami – and the members of her little Indiana mosque – come face to face with a U.S. Marine who has secret plans to bomb their community center. But Mac McKinney’s plan takes an unexpected turn. “Stranger at the Gate” is a story of grace, transformation, and hope.

“‘Stranger At The Gate’ is a refreshing, redemptive story that serves as an antidote to the demagoguery and vitriol that has come to define our current moment.” —Mikael Jorgensen, Wilco
“A brave and compelling film. A story of real people, divided, using a traumatic event to make change from the inside out. We need this film, and we need it to be viewed and discussed widely.” —Elizabeth Lesser, New York Times bestselling author and co-founder of Omega Institute
Presented in partnership with Mountain Mediation as part of the Raising Voices Film Series, supported with grant funding from Park City Municipal Corp and the Park City Chamber.
