ACT Lecturer + Alumna Marisa Morán Jahn premieres her new film series, Careforce One


A humorous and touching road tale, the CareForce One Travelogues features the artist Marisa Morán Jahn (ACT lecturer and alumna), her son Choco, and their buddy Anjum Asharia as they travel from their homes in NYC to Miami in a fifty-year old station wagon, the CareForce One.

Meeting up with nannies, housekeepers, caregivers, and allies along the way, this series explores how care intersects with some of today’s most pressing issues — immigration, the legacies of slavery, racial discrimination, and more. The Sundance-supported series is part of the CareForce, a public art project that amplifies the voices of America’s fastest growing workforce, caregivers.

The film will premiere at various museums and universities. In each location, the 30 minute film screening will be accompanied by music, performances, and lively conversation with artists, filmmakers, scholars, domestic workers.
