The Multiplicity of Us
On June 2015, 24 women of immigrant and first generation backgrounds of all ages came together for an intense one day video production workshop. Together, they produced a series of three short videos: COMING AND LIVING IN AMERICA, BORDERS INSIDE AND OUT and LUNA'S STORY: THE IMPORTANCE OF ACCEPTING YOURSELF.
Presented by New York Women in Film and Television and taught by Third World Newsreel, this media project was made possible through support from City Council Member Elizabeth Crowley and the Cultural Immigrant Initiative of New York City.

"THE MULTIPLICITY OF US... details the cultural and emotional challenges the women faced in becoming part of contemporary U.S. society. The women interviewed on camera are intelligent, frank, often funny, and more than eager to share their experiences. Whether they are dealing with family members who are not pleased with how Americanized they've become or are trying to navigate the intricacies and eccentricities of the American way of life, the women offer real insights into the challenges faced by today's immigrant populations. Recommended."
