We Are Here is an audio-visual portrait of what it’s like to walk this land in the shoes of an immigrant under 30. It’s a moment of reflection that reminds us of the people that immigrated to this country when they were children. Accompanied by animation and music, the fragments in their stories will paint a portrait of what it’s like to walk this land in their shoes and serve as a reminder of their presence. Perhaps we can see them beyond their status after this experience?
