Proof

A Film by Nora Jaenicke

Synopsis

An immigration officer is asking a young Pakistani woman to present “material proof” that she is entering the marriage with a US citizen “in good faith.” What she considers the most important proof would make her family either kill her or have her killed. PROOF is a film about a young couple that celebrates their love and their individual and shared struggles, in a world where immigration becomes an increasingly polarized and polarizing societal issue.
