Homeland Road (2019-)

Homeland Road is a short film that explores questions related to home-coming, travel and forgetfulness. It follows two visits to Hungary and the author’s search for his grandmother’s village. Mingling personal stories with wider political developments, Homeland Road hopes to offer an insight into the way individuals navigate in a Europe whose borders and identity are being constantly reshaped.

A first version of Homeland Road was created for the Digital Diaspora open call by Centrala (Birmingham). Showcased in Birmingham and Stockholm (Studio 44).
