100 years

100 years ago it all started. My family’s journey from our homeland to America was not by choice.

The 100 Year Project

The 100 Year project was inspired by an interview with my grandfather I did when I was 16 years old. I am compiling many forms of media to tell the story of my family. I almost didn't make it into this world, our family tree was saved by a single act of kindness my grandfather gave to a passing stranger in the desert.Animation combined with photographs and video interviews will tell the tale taking us across 100 years and 6 generations of my family.
