Filming at the Borders: Migrating to Europe Today
A special film series organized by the Columbia University Maison Française and curated by Nora Philippe

The world today counts more displaced people than at any time since 1945, and Europe is facing the most significant arrival of migrants in the postwar period. Though politicians and the mass media often depict this phenomenon as a threat, filmmakers have created important works that propose alternative perspectives.

This special series presents screenings of ten recent films followed by in-depth discussions with the filmmakers and academic specialists in disciplines ranging from philosophy and history to film studies, sociology and legal studies.
