Shut Away is a window into a less-discussed immigration story in the United States. There are currently around fifty undocumented immigrants living in churches across the nation after receiving deportation orders. Taking refuge in these churches provides some insulation from the possibility of deportation, but the spaces end up being a prison of a different sort. Using the still photograph, moving image and oral testimony, this project explores a complex situation at the intersection of immigration, religion and politics. Of any state in the nation, North Carolina has the most individuals living in sanctuary. Shut Away aims to highlight the people in that southern state who are engaged in these acts of resistance.
