What Constitutes Home?


The discovery of 8mm home movies shot in the 1960s instigates a conversation between three family members about roots, identity, and home.

Director’s Statement

This film came together almost by accident, and I was very much in two minds about releasing the film publicly. I wanted to have the 8mm film rolls scanned for posterity’s sake, and had no real idea that I could turn the material into something that might appeal to people outside of my immediate family. Months after having had the footage scanned, I decided to call my Dad and my Aunt to chat about the films – excerpts from these calls are what you hear in the documentary. It is a deeply personal piece of work and I hope one that resonates with people.
