The Dependents



2021, ~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 of a Canadian Immigration Officer, 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 multicultural immigration around the world.
