Refugee I met at CAFEMIN

“Sky” is a six-part web series on the personal journey of refugees.

Each episode will delve into another aspect of the experience of a specific refugee,  examining the specifics of how exactly and why exactly they had to leave their homes. Sky  will further explore the very few organizations that advocate for and house refugees.

 CAFEMIN, a woman-run, woman-founded shelter, and advocacy center in Mexico City where I met three Honduran refugees who fled to this shelter. 

Poetry (from various New York and Mexican poets) and animation (by Miah Artola) are woven throughout all six episodes to further elucidate the magnitude of these stories and courage


.”Sky” is part of my multi-platform project “..and also with you”. “…and also with you”  is a multi-platform project: paintings, films, motion-activated projections, and immersive installations based on the personal stories of refugees
