Directed by Khaldiya Amer Ali, Karoli Bautista Pizarro, Christy Cauper Silvano, and Marah Mohammad Alkhateeb | Jordan/Peru/USA | 2021 | 1h 21m | Arabic, Spanish, and Shipibo w/ English subtitles

Two Syrian directors in Za’atari Refugee Camp, Jordan, and two Indigenous Shipibo-Konibo directors in Lima, Peru, correspond through film diaries in a cross-border project from Another Kind of Girl Collective. This documentary tells four profoundly personal stories of motherhood, displacement, and the power of both personal and communal resistance.

This one-off screening is followed by a Q&A with the film’s producer and editor EB Landesberg.
