From Diversity to Belonging #2
Mosaic America President Usha Srinivasan will moderate a conversation between Christina Antonakos-Wallace( Director and Producer) and Sonny Singh and Tania Mattos, two of the artists featured in the film.
‘From Here’ Full documentary link will be shared to participants who registered for the event for one week leading up to May 20th.
Film description: 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 and integration debates. As the US and Germany grapple with racism, nationalism, and a fight against diversity, 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 centres of immigration, this sensitive and nuanced documentary captures their journeys to define what it means to “belong” in societies that are increasingly hostile to their existence.
“In the face of nationalism, we need narratives that connect us to our interdependence, challenge our assumptions, and open our imagination. The stories in From Here invite viewers to engage with—rather than retreat from—our global reality.”
