We Are Here

We Are Here depicts three young theatre artists, who in different ways grapple with the issue of migration in their arts. The film shows, how migration is gradually changing Danish society and culture. The film is in part a result of a collaborative science project about 'postmigration' at the university of Southern Denmark: www.sdu.dk/postmigration

Director Statement

I am interested in exploring how the cultural sciences can merge with the documentary film genre and produce something that combines scientific research, research dissemination and entertainment, and in this way allows for the cultural sciences to reach larger audiences and have greater impact than is currently the case.
