From Here: Young artists and activists from immigrant families redefine belonging in an era of rising nationalism globally. California Premiere!

From Here is a hopeful story of Tania, Sonny, Miman and Akim—artists and activists based in Berlin and New York whose lives and futures hang in the balance of immigration debates. As the U.S. and Germany grapple with racism, nationalism, and a fight over their national identities, our protagonists move from their 20s into their 30s and face major turning points in their lives—fighting for citizenship, starting families, and finding room for creative expression. Spanning a decade in two of the world’s largest centers of immigration, this sensitive and nuanced documentary captures their journeys to redefine what it means to belong in societies that are increasingly hostile to their existence.
