Philadelphia is home to about 200,000 foreign-born residents, each of whom has their own story to share.
PhillyCAM is seeking immigrants in the Philadelphia area to partake in “Immigration in Full Frame,” a national documentary project retelling the stories of immigrants — both newcomers and those whose descendants migrated as long ago as 1620. The interviews will be filmed in virtual reality.
As described by PhillyCAM in a press release, the goals of the documentary project are to:
- Demonstrate the broad diversity and beauty of American immigration
- Re-imagine how we, as a society, share stories of migration
- Outline a visual narrative of where and how Americans came together
“PhillyCAM and Brookline Interactive Group want to use this project as a way to go beyond headlines to create intimate portraits of those most affected by the current administration’s position on immigration; from the story of a single dreamer facing possible deportation to a migration story that spans three generations,” said PhillyCAM ED Gretjen Clausing.
Interviews will be filmed at PhillyCAM on Friday, June 8, and Saturday, June 9 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
