Displaced: Immigration Stories

January 19 – March 22

Displacement due to war, persecution, natural disasters, or political folly has been a reality for millions of the world’s citizens for centuries. However, the current migrant crisis in Europe and the United States seems borne very directly of national policy decisions that have catalyzed a mass forced migration of people searching for very basic human requirements: clean water and air, a living wage, and freedom from tyranny. Programmed in conjunction with Richard Mosse: Incoming (currently installed in the East Building), this series highlights a selection of films by and about immigrants and asylum seekers, with unique voices from Bosnia, Eritrea, France, the Philippines, Syria, and the United States.
