Event Details

Two Syrian women in Za’atari Refugee Camp, Jordan, and two Indigenous, Shipibo-Konibo women in Lima, Peru, correspond through film diaries, forming connections and friendship. They are separated by a vast distance but find ways to be close through sharing stories of motherhood, displacement, and their everyday lives. They learn about each other’s cultures and traditions while connecting through an understanding of living through displacement and uncertainty. Moving back and forth between scenes of the women talking on video chat and scenes of their homes, communities, families, and lives, Solo el mar nos separa shares beautiful moments of intimacies.
