Sanctuary/Sustenance: The Story of Many Journeys

Journeys Festival Portsmouth 2016 - Sanctuary and SustenanceART WORKS Projects is pleased to announce the multimedia film  Sanctuary/Sustenance: The Story of Many Journeys will be projected in cities across Europe throughout 2017 thanks to generous support from the COFRA Foundation. Through photographs, moving graphics, and music, viewers have an opportunity to trace the journey of a family during the catastrophic events of displacement, on a path to sanctuary, and through the long process of rebuilding life in a new community.

Sanctuary/Sustenance aims to raise the public consciousness of these issues to a wide variety of people, and facilitate conversations about our collective responsibility to welcome refugees and encourage policy makers to act in favor of fundamental human rights for refugees and asylum seekers.

Collaborators include Lynsey AddarioMarcus BleasdalePaula Bronstein, Helene Caux, Jean ChungRon HavivDavid HogsholtGiulio di Sturco, and James Whitlow Delano along with filmmaker Maren WickwireSanctuary/Sustenance features music by the Argentine classical composer Osvaldo Noé Golijov. Additional music is by Lee Maddeford, Jonathan Wiest, and Ventanas. The film was co-directed by Leslie Thomas and Maren Wickwire.
