Unsettled: Seeking Refuge in America

New York Premiere

Dir. Tom Shepard, USA, 2019, 84 mins

Tom Shepard’s new documentary follows four asylum-seekers from Syria, Angola, and The Democratic Republic of Congo as they try to start fresh in the United States. Subhi, Junior, Mari, and Cheynne have come a long way from home, but their journeys are just beginning. Even prior to Donald Trump’s election, the asylum process was notoriously labyrinthine for many refugees. Nonetheless, these four extraordinary individuals have persisted tenaciously.

Depicted with heartbreaking intimacy, UNSETTLED: SEEKING REFUGE IN AMERICA is inspiring must-see cinema. Much is at stake for queer and trans immigrants globally and we have a long way to go in order to sufficiently support them.

Preceded by short: She’s Not a Boy
Dir. Yuhong Pang & Robert Tokanel, USA & Zimbabwe, 2018, 0:22:47

Tatenda Ngwaru left Zimbabwe with sixty dollars and the hope that she would finally find a place she belonged. But for an asylum-seeking intersex woman, even a diverse, queer-friendly city like New York is a hard place to make home.
