Dream City: Immigrant Experiences in Film – Feet in 2 Worlds – April 21st to 23rd

flyer II

The Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility hosts the Feet in 2 Worlds film series entitled “Dream City: immigrant experiences in film.”

In this project, independent filmmakers are producing works that go beyond popular narratives of immigration and take risks to tell new ones. The films in this series explore the cultural complexity of leaving one place and arriving in another. What is destroyed in the process? How are networks, politics and identities rebuilt and reformed through migration? Held over three nights, Dream City will include feature-length documentaries and short student works.

Join us for a reception on opening night with food and drinks being served from 5.30pm-6.30pm. After the screening of A Son’s Sacrifice, there will be a panel discussion from 8.30pm-9.30pm with the filmmakers, Ursula Liang, Director of “9 MAN”, Musa Syeed, Producer of “A Son’s Sacrifice”, Valeria Fernandez, Director or “Two Americans,” Takeshi Fukunaga director of “Out of my Hand” and Alexandra Delano Prof. Global Studies at the New School. The discussion will be moderated by John Rudolph, Executive Producer of Feet in 2 Worlds.
