In the so-called ‘century of migrations’, forced or voluntary, these 8 directors of photography take us to Tibet, Angola, Alaska, Colombia, Greece, Black Hills, Gaza and Maluku Islands to shoot with total creative and aesthetic freedom the story of several characters who are living in conflict zones but, despite the adversity, are in the process of building their home.
What does ‘home’ mean for each of them?
Like love, the concept of ‘home’ has as many forms as there are people in the world; it’s a very subjective term, but, at the same time, easily recognizable by all.
This thoroughly visual and On the road documentary film proposes a new look of a universal feeling in order to know us better and to reflect on where we are going as humanity.
