Happy New Year, we’re kicking off the year with a light conversation. Namely Immigrant led stories in film, and where we can find them. Luckily, Bilal Zouheir joins to navigate us through that journey. Bilal holds an MBA and started his business as a film curator, founding uprootedmovies.com, the internet’s first immigrant cinema website.
He also runs agoodmovietowatch.com, a film recommendation site trusted by 6 million readers every year. Originally from Morocco, now currently living in Berlin, Germany, Bilal discusses what we can learn from immigrant-focused films (what does it look like when it’s done correctly, incorrectly, etc.) and lends a few recommendations for you to check out while you stay warm this winter.
