HOME WILL BE SCREENED IMMEDIATELY PRIOR TO THE SCREENING OF THE DAUGHTER (tickets are NOT required to see Home. Tickets are required for The Daughter only).
A family, led by their confident and caring father, heads out on what appears to be a holiday. However it slowly becomes clear that they are in fact leaving the security and safety of a leafy suburb to cross Europe and make their way into the middle of a war zone. As they travel the father's re-assurances ring hollow as under great stress the father buckles and the mother's strength takes over.
Intimate and touching, the film reaches for a truth through its absurd premise of reversing the refugee journey. HOME depicts the breakdown and rebuilding of trust and love amid the horrors of war and migration. We witness the realities and trauma of being refugees as within the family, roles of leadership and bravery are passed from one parent to another.
HOME is a sensitive, layered and complex exploration of how fear can bring out the best and worst in all of us.
“My partner’s own experience as a refugee, the most personal to me, combined with the thought of the young family I had met, almost a year earlier guided ‘HOME’ at every stage.” Director, Daniel Mulloy
