Filmmaker in Bowling Green to showcase Burmese refugees

Bowling Green, Ky – More than 1,000 refugees from Burma have arrived in Bowling Green in recent years. For more than 60 years, Burma's military regime has persecuted ethnic minorities, prompting many to flee their country for refugee camps in Thailand. From there, some have made it to the US. Documentary filmmaker Paco Beltran is in Bowling Green to see how some of these refugees have settled into life in southern Kentucky. Lisa Autry has our story.
