The Dependents



2020, ~80 min, HD Video and 16 mm

Director, Camera, Edit, Sound Design by Sofía Brockenshire


Based on diaries that detail 30 years of service abroad as a Canadian Immigration Officer, Neil and his
family feel their national identities somewhat fragmented by the experience overseas when back to
Canada or Argentina, the family's countries of origin. As a child of this family, The Dependents is an
intimate audiovisual exploration of nomadic existences, where the concept of home and belonging must
to be reconstructed between the past and present as a direct result of travel, displacement, globalization,
and the effects of the multicultural immigration project around the world.
