Borders (and all the politics attending the drawing of borders) exist to keep some people in (by granting or refusing citizenship) and others out. This film is an attempt to capture the presence of people otherwise denied the political right to be at home in some place that is their home, where they have their being: Palestinians and Israelis in the contested Middle East; Africans in France, Cubans on the island of Cuba (their right to rule themselves denied by foreign powers).—Robert Fenz
