About this Event

Join North River Commission at Vintage Grindhouse for a special Mosaic Screening event, Albany Park Theater Project's 2012-2013 Home/Land.

"A brother sings his sister to sleep with the tale of a glorious tree whose roots grow on both sides of a border. A pair of young lovers dance on their wedding night, then wade across the Río Grande hand-in-hand as their honeymoon. A precocious seven year-old in Jordan becomes an unconventional entrepreneur to pay for her family’s immigration. A boat hurls two dozen immigrants across the Gulf of Mexico. A warrior priest turns a bar into a sanctuary for new immigrants. A father and son rehearse new identities for a new life. So begin the epic quests of Home/Land. With its characteristic humanity and creativity, the award-winning Albany Park Theater Project brings to theatrical life a collection of real-life stories of desire, risk, resilience, heroism, love, and hope – as immigrant families strive to stay together and make a better life in the land they’ve come to call home."

From the Chicago Tribune: “Home/Land is passionate and well-argued piece of political theater about immigration – or, more specifically, a howl of collective anguish….The immorality of prison-like immigration detention centers, filled with those who wanted only to feed their children or feel free, is revealed with particular force.”
