Becoming
2020, 16mm on 2K video, 11 min

As the US ramps up border enforcement during summer 2019, a formerly undocumented activist prepares for her naturalization test with her filmmaker-partner. In impressionistic scenes that span North Carolina and the Arizona borderlands, jingoistic displays of patriotism and creative acts of revolt, the film playfully interrogates the paradoxes of citizenship.
