Marshall D. Shulman Seminar Room (1219 IAB, 420 West 118th St.)
“Originally from Yugoslavia, a country that no longer exists except in books and films, my family immigrated to Cyprus to escape political unrest. Raised in Cyprus, I’m approaching the film as a personal exploration of what it means to have a hybrid existence in which one is always searching for an identity.
The title “Evaporating Borders” corresponds to the idea that the erosion of boundaries and borders (both physical and metaphoric) defamiliarize the narratives of selfhood through which identities take shape and reproduce themselves. The flow of populations, commodities and information is associated with loss of traditions, memories and histories.” (read more on the film’s website)
