‘Home’ painstakingly elaborates a cinematographic genealogical tree based on the relationship between a daughter (the director) and her mother. The film intersects stories, forms of self-writing – letters, testimonies, interviews – and image files, admitting the complexity in the incidence of time over memories, bodies and personal relationships, all of which imbued with tensions. Like a rare piece that draws its strength from its apparent simplicity, the film assembles stories about a city and a generation to surpass the supposedly intimate nature of a personal narrative.
