Holocaust Museum Houston presents We Are In It
We Are In It chronicles the stories and journeys of five Houston residents and their attempt to find refuge in Houston. 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.
Filmed over a period of two years, this documentary traces their daily experiences, and reveals the subtleties of despair, hope and irony, in an intensified political climate regarding global migration. The film tells the paradoxical story of placement and displacement, an ever-morphing tales that not consist of clear points of entry or departure. There will also be a post film discussion.
