Runtime:  1 hour 47 minutes

We are in it chronicles the stories and journeys of five Houston residents and their attempt to find refuge in this American metropolis. By combining tales of deportation with everyday defeats and resilience, it identifies what lies beneath the surface of migrant and refugee realities and the unsettling need to move towards political and economic security. The film documents their personal archives – poetry and paintings of Baghdad, film clips of the Burmese diaspora, songs in Swahili – and their efforts to re-envisage a home amidst experiences of trivialized war, hardship, and alienation.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=”” type=”0″][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_video link=”https://vimeo.com/174896397″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=”” type=”0″][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text css_animation=””]
