Journeys Near and Far: Shorts on Migration

Curated by Maori Karmael Holmes as part of Scribe Video Center’s Producer’s Forum.

These 6 short documentary films examine people’s movements, immigration and emigration. Whether migrating by choice or force, the impact of leaving one’s home and the longing for a sense of place and identity unite these powerful works. After the screenings, directors Darius Clark Monroe and Brian Redondo join Maori Holmes for a discussion; Rami Nihawi, Lina Alabed, Nadim Deaibes, Andrea Fuentes Charles, and Verónica Jessamyn López Sainz join the conversation via Skype.
