We're announcing a new docuseries produced by the UptownWorks team in partnership with Midnight Oil Collective. As 2020 closes out, our team is grateful to be able to connect with local artists to share each other's stories.
the new colossus: an exploration of why we're here
The experience of moving, of leaving one place and arriving in another, of creating 'home away from home', however permanent, is a wholly varied and nuanced experience for each individual. There is no single, monolithic story. The New Colossus is a mini-documentary series exploring the question 'why are we here?' It is a poetic investigation of identity, seeking to centralize the bodies, minds, and spirits of each participant, in all stages of the filmmaking process.
