Join us for a screening of the documentary film From Here. About the film: Set in Berlin and New York, From Here interweaves the stories of Tania, Miman, Sonny and Akim—artists and activists raised in the Global North to parents from the Global South. The film accompanies them as they move from their 20’s into their 30’s, facing major turning points: fighting for citizenship, creating a family, surviving violence, and finding creative expression. Beautifully shot over the course of ten years, the film captures their struggle to define belonging for themselves in societies increasingly hostile to their existenceRegister to attend

 

Please note that on April 13 we are hosting a Q & A with director Christina Antonakos-Wallace and two of the film’s subjects, Sonny and Tania. Learn more about this opportunity and how to register.

 

Part of the Global and Its Worlds series, cosponsored by Illinois Global Institute and Humanities Research Institute.
