A melancholy song, full of hope and longing, reverberates in The New World, guiding us through the lives of Lebanese immigrants Amer and Sana Khaddaj. Ghalia Elsrakbi and Lauren Alexander use archival material to collect stories of ordinary people of Middle Eastern descent, bringing us a fresh look at what it means to be displaced.
