Imagining Place


Imagining Place investigates through interviews the question "What does belonging feel like in America?" Amidst increasing social, technological and environmental fragmentation, this film challenges audiences to examine their external and internal sense of place. Imagining Place speaks to those individuals for whom the question of belonging is most immediate, such as immigrants, exiles or individuals who live on the margins because of physical, social and psychological borders.
