A film series focusing on the everyday life of migrants and migrants in the making: Through the lens of intimate relationships and a ground-up historical perspective, five curated documentaries and films explore the causation and consequences of international and global migration. By providing place-specific,historically contextualized narratives,
it becomes obvious that the question of whether
to stay or not to stay is one that remains with people
well before, and long after their eventual departure.
