Christina Antonakos-Wallace
1h 29m
Festival - Local Sightings Film Festival 2020: Feature Films

From Here is a hopeful story of artists and activists based in Berlin and New York whose lives hang in the balance of immigration and integration debates. Our protagonists move from their 20s into their 30s as they fight for citizenship, start families and find room for creative expression. This sensitive, nuanced documentary captures their journeys to define what it means to belong in societies that are increasingly hostile to their existence.
Filmed over a decade in two of the worlds largest immigration countries  the U.S. and Germany  these individuals stories echo those of millions of young people from immigrant families coming of age during this era of rising nationalism. From Here showcases not only their struggles, but their enormous power.
