Description
Newest Americans is a series of films that look at immigration, identity and the majority minority future of the United States. The result of a collaboration between Rutgers University–Newark, VII Photo, and Montclair’s own Talking Eyes Media, the narratives in this series all have Jersey roots with a global reach. From a Syrian-American composer who has written an anthem for the revolution, to Newark Mayor Ras Baraka’s own family journey during the Great Migration, Newest Americans captures the diversity and breadth that defines our cultural fabric. MFF is proud to partner with The Newest Americans project to present a selection of films created by its participants.
