Shgigir (Crossings): Stop action animation, using paint, 18'07"

Created at Smack Mellon Studio Program

For this short I conducted interviews with recipients of the Diversity Lottery who came from Ethiopia to New York City. Unlike earlier immigrants who had to have certain privileges, the lottery allowed a broad demographic to immigrate. Paralleling with the marine life of the city, this work is a meditation on the migratory experience.
