A few years ago, Daniela Berghahn, who led the Migrant and Diasporic Cinema Network, embarked on a new research project investigating the the representation of diasporic families in film. Her monograph Far-Flung Families in Film: The Diasporic Family in Contemporary European Cinema was published in May 2013. The book seeks to answer a number of key questions: Why have films with diasporic family narratives increased in popularity in recent years? How do representations of the diasporic family differ from those of more dominant social groups? How does diasporic cinema negotiate the conventions of film genres commonly associated with the representation of the family?
