Am I An Invasive Species?


Am I An Invasive Species?


“Am I an Invasive Species” is an autobiographical experimental film, stemming from a question posed from our lands—am I invasive to this land? The language for foreign objects, plants, and humans is rooted in alienation, erasing the long history of immigration.

In this short visual poem, an alien to this country questions her connection to this indigenous land as an immigrant and longing for her mother water, while asking the deep rooted trees to teach her the local ways of belonging, connection, and displacement.
