Film Festival – Sag Harbor and the World: Embracing Diversity – Saturday, September 9th – Sag Harbor Whaling Museum



From its beginnings as a Whaling port to today, Sag Harbor has embraced its multi-culture heritage. From the indigenous to the newly settled, the Village has become a diverse community coexisting in peace and productivity.

As with much of history, the immigrants and refugees today come to this land in the hopes of building a new life and/or escaping a world filled with war, political, religious and social persecution, and more.

Through their art, these young filmmakers attempt to bring a new perspective to their audience about the similarities we share with people we label as “different”. By zooming in on individuals that share this human experience we can all relate to: hopes, dreams, love, fear, anger… a connection is made possible that can diminish any prejudices one might hold. The goal with these films is to ultimately develop awareness of the fact that if we want to live well, we must live well with each other, regardless of how different we believe we may be.
