About the Film

“Everyone in America should see this film.” — Saskia Sassen, Sociologist, Columbia University

“[CareForce One Travelogues] focuses on an American experience that’s not often in the foreground of popular culture: caregiving.” — Hyperallergic

Careforce One Travelogues draws new connections between women’s work, race and class.” — Mic.com

“Marisa Jahn’s [work] exemplifies the possibilities of art as social practice.” — Artforum

A humorous and touching road tale, the CareForce One Travelogues features the artist Marisa Morán Jahn, her son Choco, and their buddy Anjum Asharia as they travel from their homes in NYC to Miami in a fifty-year old station wagon, the CareForce One. Meeting up with nannies, housekeepers, caregivers, and allies along the way, this series explores how care intersects with some of today's most pressing issues — immigration, the legacies of slavery, racial discrimination, and more. This Sundance and ITVS-supported series is part of the CareForce, a public art project that amplifies the voices of America's fastest growing workforce, caregivers. www.careforce.co

Produced by Studio REV- and Oscar and Emmy-winning filmmaker Yael Melamede (SALTY Features) with support from the National Domestic Workers Alliance and Caring Across Generations. Support from Sundance and Fledgling Fund. Digital Release as weekly episodes on ITVS/PBS starting May 1st, 2018 - International Worker’s Day (May Day!)
