Description:

Join the Northwestern Buffett Institute for Global Affairs for a screening of Letters2Maybe, a new film from writer, filmmaker and poet Yehuda Sharim on Monday, June 6 from 3:45–5:30 at Hardin Hall (633 Clark Street Evanston, IL 60208).  

Letters2Maybe offers an intimate portrayal of those who refuse to surrender amidst daily devastation and culminating strife, offering a vision for equality and a renewed sense of solidarity in a divisive country. Letters2Maybe offers a fluid and eclectic tapestry of physical and emotional movement of different immigrant communities as they encounter impossible challenges in a country of compounded catastrophes. By embracing a kaleidoscopic style of storytelling to highlight the poetics and precarity that follow the craving for freedom, Letters2Maybe is an unfinished letter, articulating the ever-growing yet unflinching demand for justice and tenderness in our world today.

Sharim’s films have appeared in film festivals, artistic venues, and universities across the world. His work offers an intimate portrayal of those who refuse to surrender amidst daily devastation and culminating strife, offering a vision for equality and a renewed solidarity in a divisive world.
