TED Translators are volunteers who subtitle TED Talks, and enable the inspiring ideas in them to crisscross languages and borders.
On March 17, TEDxCampinas went down near the city of São Paulo, Brazil, at the Municipal Theater José Castro Mendes. The sold-out event was organized by veteran TED Translator and TED2017 Translator delegate Mario Gioto, and had as its theme O Presente do Amanhã (The Gift of Tomorrow).
Mahmoud Aghiorly is a TED Translator who originally hails from Aleppo, Syria. In this short documentary, get an intimate glimpse into not just Mahmoud’s work as a volunteer TED Translator, but also his family’s story of immigration to Australia—and the hope and redemption they’ve found there.
