Mexican-American director Leo Aguirre captures the experience of inhabiting a dichotomous identity in this beautiful short film. Redefining what it means to be American, “No Somos De Aquí, Ni Somos De Allá” (which translates to ‘We are not from here, nor there”), explores ideas of cultural assimilation as well as biculturalism through a series of personal reflections from those living along the US-Mexico border.
