An event presented at The Italian American Heritage Foundation with the support of The Italian Cultural Institute of San Francisco and The Leonardo da Vinci Society. 
Post-screening discussion with the director, project manager Antonino Imbesi and art director writer Luigi Vitelli.
Discussion led by Evelyn Ferraro from Santa Clara University and Laura E. Ruberto from Berkely City College.

Join Luigi Vitelli and Antonio Imbesi as they present their documentary Vado Verso Dove Vengo and the video installation entitled I’m Going Where I Come From. Both works investigate and compose, from an anthropological point of view, passages from personal stories of Lucanians who emigrated abroad (both old and new emigration), and put them in relation with the stories of those who remain in Basilicata, to make the two communities recognized in a practice of choral construction of new meanings of their places of origin.
