Home Is Not A Place

But there was a choice: my parents or my children.” Through personal film recordings and narrated pieces of memory, the film tells the story of a forced migratory voyage of a Czechoslovakian family to India, Kenya and Austria. The combination of 8mm film fragments and oral recollections of family members not only show a piece of political history through a personal story; the fragile images of a lifetime condensed into a few minutes also tell a story about the act of looking back, about the passing of time and about life itself: home is not a place but a passage.
