Amélie Nguyen and Vincent Nguyen photographed these 20 pictures that depict the story behind Anh and Chi, illustrating the brother and duo who created a place to gather, share foods, stories, and experiences. These siblings learned the value of hard work, watching their refugee parents create a life for their family. Through loss, they turned their family-owned restaurant into a legacy, one that continues the journey their parents started.

In doing so, it has created opportunities, as well as a new meaning to the word “family”, “brother” and “sister”.

Ibrahim Parlak's Story with a Twist
“He called the restaurant Gulistan which means ‘the land of roses’. To the restaurant came the people. First one, then two, then a bunch.” In Ibrahim Parlak's Story with a Twist from PechaKucha Night Saint Joseph’s 4th volume, Presenter Ashley Reichert tells the story of a man from Kurdistan, Ibrahim Paralak, and his journey to a small town in Michigan. He is in search of freedom - a place where people are free to speak their minds, free from oppression, and free persecution. All he wants is to make a peaceful place for his family, his restaurant, and a place to grow his roses. All is going well, until one day he is just gone. Soon, many people ask where he has gone, and learn he has been jailed with the fear of being deported. Ashley goes on to tell us how he is released from jail and goes back to family, his restaurant, and his roses. All seems well again, but there's a twist.
