"Community based digital storytelling project that documents the human consequences of mass deportation. Since early 2017, with funding from various grants, and institutional sponsorships from both UC Davis and four Mexican partner institutions, our teams in six Mexican cities and California have offered a platform for migrants to share personal experiences regarding deportation on our bilingual open access website." According to its website: "It is the world’s most robust public qualitative archive on deportation."
Living Los Sures
"Produced over 5 years by 60 artists at UnionDocs Center for Documentary Art, LIVING LOS SURES is an expansive project about the Southside of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Known by its long-term Latino residents as Los Sures, the neighborhood was one of the poorest in New York City in the late 70s and early 80s. [...] With the restoration of LOS SURES, a brilliant work of cinéma vérité filmmaking as a starting point, the project has developed into a collection of 40 SHORT FILMS, the interactive documentary 89 STEPS, and the cinematic people’s history SHOT BY SHOT, demonstrating new possibilities for collaboration between an arts institution and its surrounding community to collect memories and share local culture.
