Uproot

Statement

Around the world many people face harsh decisions in order to be with their love ones.

Either because of social or political obstacles,  borders have become not only physical but also mental ways of division. Feels like immigration laws around the world are meant to divide us from each other and stop us from being able to relate together.

Mixed nationality couples may face not only social disapproval sometimes but also bureaucratic impediments.

What if the decision of being together was not your own?

Uproot intends to tell this stories in order to challenge ourselves for a better future.
