Senior Fellow Christina Antonakos-Wallace’s and her team’s documentary film “From Here” (formerly titled With Wings & Roots) has been selected for the London Human Rights Watch Film Festival. Initial seed money through a grant from Humanity in Action as well as the work of many Senior Fellows have been involved in making this important film project a reality.
The “From Here” team shares the following statement about the documentary’s release:
“We believe that the film is premiering at exactly the right time. With the visible rise of anti-immigrant politics in the US and across Europe, people are ready for nuanced stories and new conversations about migration, racism and identity. We have a critical election in the U.S. this year, and none of us can afford to sit on the sidelines. ‘From Here’ was made for exactly these conversations.”
