The Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility, in collaboration with USA for UNHCR and difrent:, invite you to a premiere screening of the first episode of borderless, a documentary series and digital platform following musician-activist Stephan Said as he travels the globe, engaging with individuals at the frontlines of the world’s most pressing humanitarian crises.

The first 30-minute episode of borderless focuses on the global migration crisis and features footage of Said visiting refugee camps across Greece. At the camps, he hears from individuals fleeing Bashar Al-Assad, ISIS, repressive regimes, and war; relief workers; anarchist youth operating radio stations; and Kurdish minstrels, Syrian rap artists, and refugee children with whom he performs.

The premier will be followed musical performance by Said, as well as a panel discussion with Said, Ninette Kelley, Director of United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Office in New York; Alex Aleinikoff, Director of the Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility; and Lara Setrakian, CEO of News Deeply (tbc).

The event is hosted by The Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility at The New School, which facilitates public engagement with academics, policy makers, refugees, activists, and artists engaged in vital questions related to migration and mobility.
