“Raíces de mi padre,” shows my father interacting with the figurative land of his home country and the physical land of his receiving country. He was out in the backyard, doing his thing, as usual, and I was compelled to capture. This audiovisual poem grew out of this intuitive interaction. Binational activities and conversations feed our nostalgia and build generational knowledge of self.

The connection

with the land

we have today

is vague,

but it remains, nonetheless.
