Como Vivimos

Como Vivimos is an intimate, verite portrait of a year in the lives, working experiences, and educational trajectories of farmworking families who reside in a state-subsidized Migrant Family Housing Center in French Camp, CA. Through the textures of daily and seasonal routines, the film explores how farmworking families, many of whom are US citizens, frame a stable sense of belonging while living within an institution that mandates an annual transnational migration.

Aggie Ebrahimi Bazaz is an award-winning, Iranian American documentary filmmaker (Inheritance, Mama Icha's House) and educator with a history of producing work that inquires into diasporic identity and the relationship between the political and the personal. Currently an Assistant Professor of Film Production at Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pennsylvania, Ebrahimi Bazaz has also served as Program Director for the National Alliance for Media Arts and Culture (NAMAC). She earned her MFA from Temple University and her MA from the University of Georgia.
