Uprooted: Heartache and Hope in New Hampshire

Uprooted is a 30-minute documentary based on interviews collected during the New Hampshire Humanities Fences & Neighbors initiative on immigration. Sara Withers organized and conducted nearly 40 oral history interviews that served as the basis for the documentary. It tells the story of five refugees who escaped from war-torn countries to resettle in New Hampshire. The film explores what it means to be a refugee and how it feels to make a new life in a strange place, often without English language skills, family, a job, or community contacts.”
