The Story of Our Journey
This film project was created in collaboration with clarinetist Csaba Jevtic-Somlai, the project initiator and lead, and composer Dylan Findley, the artistic director. Commissioned by the City of Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture in 2019, it premiered online in fall 2020. Since then, the musical composition has been requested multiple times and seeks to amplify first-hand refugee stories through a multimedia artistic experience. Authentic audio and video interview footage provided by TSOS supports the clarinet and fixed media electronics, providing the viewer with an opportunity to reflect as refugees share details of their personal, arduous journeys from a home lost to a home found.
An educational and advocacy tool, the film project can be customized to fit the needs of academic institutions, public schools, IGOs and NGOs, and other interested parties, as well as an installation in museums or at conferences.
