Illinois Global Institute and Humanities Research Institute are proud to sponsor a screening of the documentary film From Here, a hopeful story of four young artists and activists from immigrant families redefining belonging in an era of rising nationalism globally.

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 existence.

Screening access will be available from April 11th-April 18th at 12pm CST via vimeo.  Log in access and password will be sent to you after registration at

Please note that you will need to register for the public Q & A on April 13th at
