Using impressionistic cinematic language and elements of magical realism, STATELESS follows the day-to-day lives of people directly impacted by the 2013 Dominican Republic Supreme Court decision that strips Dominican birthright citizenship from individuals of Haitian heritage born in that country. The film challenges fixed notions of culture and identity and how this exclusionary policy continues to be an extension of the violent history of a racial system that plagues the collective imagination rooted in colonial thought.
