Home and Away: A Multi-Screen Installation Chronicling the Lives and Stories of “Creative Class” Immigrants
UNO Assistant Professor of Film Laszlo Fulop and Marline Otte, a Tulane professor, present Home and Away, a multi-screen installation chronicling the individual journey and conservations “creative class” immigrants have with themselves and their surroundings.
A screening is slated for 5 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 5 at the Press Play Gallery of the Contemporary Arts Center at 900 Camp Street, New Orleans, LA 70130. The screening will be followed by a Q and A with the filmmakers.
The 60-minute documentary interlaces intimate interviews with modern dance sequences to establish a conversation between what is thought, said and felt.
“Multiple screens speak to the contradictory impulses that define the reality of most immigrants, the push and pull of countries, families and cultures, the powerful sense of purpose and belonging that can coexist with an equally acute sense of alienation.”
