    Cinematic Migrations is a two-year collaborative research and production project initiated by Renée Green (Free Agent Media) and is co-hosted by the MIT Visiting Artists Program and ACT. The work of filmmaker John Akomfrah and producer Lina Gopaul (Smoking Dogs Films, and founding members of the seminal UK-based Black Audio Film Collective) is a focal point in our investigation of the theme.
