This Place We Call Our Home

Sybilla Tuxen, Thora Lorentzen, Denmark, 2014

30 min.DK/Documentary

A documentary film from Ukraine, summer 14. With a main focus on imagery over dialog and with a fragmented storyline, the film depicts the conflict in Ukraine, and how it affects everyday life of those who stay at home; of those who is waiting. ”War” is normally understood as action, and the images we think of are the ones from a battlefield. In this film ”war” is something else. It is depicted as most people will experience it; something out of your control, far away from you, something you worry about. A worry you try to suppress, while trying to continue living. Something that might separate you from someone near to you.
