View from Elsewhere
a film by Jenny Perlin, Switzerland/USA, 22 min 2002

Migration, prejudice, intolerance, and violence have been seen as inevitable consequences of culture. View from Elsewhere reminds us that border closings, deportations, and visa restrictions all have real, tangible effects on peoples lives. It also presents moments in which memory, imagination, and communication connect us to each other, the instants where past and present meet.
