  • Year: 1999
  • Duration: 4:30
  • Country: Canada
  • An experimental short exploring the absences and buried histories that follow the act of leaving home, filtered through the many routes that leaving home takes for a √ícanadian daughter of yugoslav immigrants: cultural displacement, assimilation, mother/daughter histories, sexuality, and memory. Childhood and recent Super-8 footage is intercut to create a set of memory traces that act as a repository for family portraits, cultural memories of the balkans, immigration history and personal reflection.
