THE SAILOR

An Egyptian living and working in Pittsburgh reflects on his new surroundings through a series of images and observations. The resulting montage is a poignant cinematic postcard that explores the contradictory nature of the immigrant experience: at once lonely, frightening, and exhilarating.

A SUMMER PLACE

Tina lives and works in Limassol, a once small seaside town in Cyprus now slowly transforming into the oligarch paradise of the Mediterranean.
