Synopsis: A multi-form documentary that takes the refugee and immigration narrative out of the hands of large media companies and allows us to hear directly from those most affected. Shot in part by its subjects, the film offers a hard gaze into the myriad diverse experiences of tens of thousands of people trapped in Greece after the closing of the European borders. Greeks, international volunteers, and refugees alike now struggle to find meaning and community in a country with a continued history of political turmoil.
He graduated with a BA in Film Production from Webster University. In response to the closing of the borders in 2016, he volunteered his time working in Greece during the refugee crisis. After months living in Athens and witnessing endless simplified and detached portrayals of a complex humanitarian struggle by mainstream media, he decided to make “We Are Not Together”, his first feature film.
