In Sight explores the representation of migrants and refugees in cinematic travel narratives specifically those produced in a European and US context. The films focus is set on different protagonists traveling across changing landscapes and borders. The single filmic narrative is restructured towards a collective story using a variety of clips from different films linking together bodily movement across film-historic periods. With this gesture, In Sight seeks to explore how narratives of movement have unfolded on screen and how they become part of our perception and collective memory.
