On the Move

ON THE MOVE follows three visual artists in exile from Syria, Sudan and Nicaragua as they strive to remain emotionally connected to their turbulent home countries. As the film progresses, a kaleidoscopic view of displacement emerges, drawing similarities and contrasts in the emotional burdens of these artists through the eyes of the movement itself.
