Sometimes it takes a hard look at our past and the journeys of our ancestors to help us understand who we really are. The films in this program address notions of diasporic identity, home, and migration, and spark questions around what we’ve inherited and how that impacts and informs us, for better or for worse. Featured films include MY LOVE, ETHIOPIA; LANDSCAPE FEVER (FIEBRE DEL PASAJE); REDACTED; RENAISSANCE; and UNMARKED.
