This year marks 10 years since the violent outbreak of xenophobic attacks on foreign nationals living in South Africa. Issues of migration remain a large part of public discourse the world over; in the US and Europe, we have seen the rise of conservative political views with strong anti-immigrant positions. To understand the complexities of migration, Tshisimani will host a two-day film showcase, screening films that explore the African immigrant experience. We invite you to engage with the diverse life experiences of African immigrants through film and panel discussions that will explore the issues that each film raises.
