Relaxed Screening: From Here (12A*)

Human Rights Watch Film Festival 2020

From Here is a hopeful story of Tania, Sonny, Miman, and Akim - artists and activists based in Berlin and New York.

Their lives and futures hang in the balance of immigration and integration debates. As the US and Germany grapple with racism, nationalism, and a fight against diversity, our protagonists move from their 20s into their 30s and face major turning points in their lives: fighting for citizenship, starting families, and finding room for creative expression.

Spanning a decade in two of the world’s largest centers of immigration, this sensitive and nuanced documentary captures their journeys to define what it means to “belong” in societies that are increasingly hostile to their existence.

“In the face of nationalism, we need narratives that connect us to our interdependence, challenge our assumptions, and open our imagination. These stories...invite viewers to engage with—rather than retreat from—our global reality.”
