From 2007 to 2012, I was followed around by a camera quite a bit — during shows I was playing, workshops I was facilitating, social events, protests, and more. I am one of five protagonists in a forthcoming documentary film called with WINGS and ROOTS. Set in New York City and Berlin, the film tells the stories of children of immigrants who challenge boundaries and reimagine belonging through their artwork and/or activism.
The filming for this exciting project is all done, and now the team is reaching out for support so post-production can be completed. Given the political climate of record deportations, growing Islamophobic backlash, and a real opportunity for immigration reform in US, the time for this film to be completed and distributed is now. We need your support to raise $23,000 in the next month. Check out the Kickstarter video below, and consider making a donation and spreading the word! Thanks!
