12826 Miles in 96 Hours

Video montage of a very hurried mid-semester trip halfway around the world and back; Boston—Kuwait—Boston
in the span of one weekend. Being a visa holder of the country I consider my home (Kuwait) but a citizen of
another, my life and travels have been dictated by my visa status.  I captured every moment of this trip to give viewers
an insight into the absurdity of going on such a long, arduous journey only to spend 48 short hours with my family.

My hope for the future is a world in which the label on your passport does not determine how often you can go home;
a world in which traveling is more easily accessible, and every human receives equal opportunities.
