Uncertain Movements

Lying somewhere between dream and nightmare, American immigrants face a tenuous existence in a land that never quite feels like home. Whether regularly fighting deportation or struggling with the monotony of life on alien soil, these short films represent reality for those who have found themselves caught between a rock and a hard place in the so-called land of the free.

This short film program is available internationally.
