Professor Vandana Pednekar-Magal‘s documentary, From Somewhere Else, will be aired on WGVU/PBS on Sunday, April 19th at 3 pm. The documentary was produced by Pednekar-Magal and Keith Oppenheim and focuses on immigrant communities, global media, and transnational identities.

The film portrays transnational life and identities of recent immigrant communities in Grand Rapids, and describes how the many communities – Indian, Bosnian, Chinese, Latin American, Sudanese, and Vietnamese – maintain connection with their heritage countries via media and communication technologies.
