Pascal Sanchez

Nearest Neighbours

Rhonda Chan Soo

2019 - Trinidad & Tobago - 22 mins - Documentary

Canadian Premiere

In 2019, at least 16,000 Venezuelans are confirmed to have fled to Trinidad and Tobago, since 2015. The twin island republic is one of the most economically viable options for asylum-seekers, yet many are unaware of the reality that is to welcome them.  Nearest Neighbours  interweaves the stories of four main sets of characters: a journalist; a couple with three young children and their abuela; a woman who is living in a horse stable among other refugees; and a computer engineer turned construction worker and his family.   The film explores how these refugees and asylum-seekers navigate their environments daily and work to move their lives forward amidst many unexpected challenges, including rampant xenophobia and a lack of legal rights due to the absence of local refugee legislation.
