From the epicenter of today’s global migration debates, FROM HERE follows four young people who represent the future of global citizenry. Filmed over the better part of a decade in two of the world’s largest immigration countries (the U.S. and Germany) FROM HERE captures an international generation’s fight for belonging in an era of rising nationalism.
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.
We are happy to organize this event together with IOM (International Organization for Migration).
