Synopsis

Lebanese-Canadian filmmaker
Rawane Nassif considers the feelings of displacement and otherness that come with being an expat – a situation that gives rise to a contradictory sensation of transient belonging. Her exploration of a residential complex that is still under construction allows the artist to reflect on what it means to live in a fragmented series of places one calls “home” – and to recognise the difference between a home for one’s heart and a home for one’s feet.
