Going Home? The immigrant experience through film

Dino Sossi, Berkman Fellow

Berkman Center for Internet & Society, 23 Everett St, 2nd Floor


The documentary film Home focuses on Victor Sossi, a European immigrant who has lived in North America for several decades. His nephew Dino traveled to Europe to discover the reason why he has never returned.

Home focuses on the tension between a younger generation's need for self-discovery and an older generation's wish to move on. Shot throughout Europe and North America, Home explores issues of personal identity, memory and collective grief.

The screening of this rough cut for the Berkman Luncheon Series will involve a Q&A with the filmmaker and an opportunity for audience members to provide feedback for this work-in-progress. For more information, please visit http://www.TheHomeFilm.com
