Marshall D. Shulman Seminar Room, 1219 IAB, 420 West 118th St.

The Njegos Foundation for Serbian Language and Culture presents EVAPORATING BORDERS a film by Iva Radivojević.

Originally from Yugoslavia, a country that no longer exists except in books and films, Iva Radivojević’s family immigrated to Cyprus to escape political unrest. Raised in Cyprus, she is approaching the film as a personal exploration of what it means to have a hybrid existence in which one is always searching for an identity.
