Co-presented by Salvavision
Featuring a live post-film Q&A with director/producer Christina Antonakos-Wallace and film subject Sonny Singh!
Set in Berlin and New York, the documentary From Here is a hopeful story of four young artists and activists from immigrant families redefining belonging in an era of rising racism and nationalism, and against the realities of displacement for millions of economic, climate and conflict refugees. From Here interweaves the stories of Tania, Miman, Sonny and Akim – young people raised in the Global North by 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 resistant to their existence.
