Postnational: Stories of Migration

More people are migrating away from their countries of birth than at any previous time. War, ecological disaster, global economics, and political exile all contribute to a world that can no longer be accurately mapped by physical borders. In works both deeply personal and sociologically rigorous, documentarians are the cartographers of this new world, responding to the dispersal of its populations and becoming “international artists” almost by default. A number of filmmakers take up that charge in this year's festival, including Sandhya Suri (I For India), Tin Dirdamal (DeNADIE), Christopher Quinn (God Grew Tired of Us), and Joseph Mathew (Crossing Arizona). With moderator Gara LaMarche (Open Society Institute), these filmmakers discuss their work in this timely panel.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
