Refugee I met at CAFEMIN

“Sky” is a six-part web series on refugee women who fled from Central America to CAFEMIN, a woman-run, woman-founded shelter and advocacy center in Mexico City.

Each episode will delve into another aspect of their experience, examining the specifics of how exactly and why exactly they had to leave their homes.

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 women’s stories and courage.“Sky” is part of my multi-platform project “..and also with you”.

 

“…and also with you” is a NYFA funded,

multi-platform project, which creates 

paintings, motion-activated projections, and

immersive installations based on the personal stories of refugees
