We will screen and discuss With Wings and Roots, a feature-length documentary that tells the stories of four young people from different immigrant backgrounds who challenge what it means to be American or German through their artwork and activism. The film juxtaposes the struggles around national identity in two cities at the epicenter of immigration debates – Berlin and New York. We will discuss the film and transmedia project’s collaborative production over ten years, its community engagement strategy, and how to foster more global conversations about migration and national identity.
