True Story Shorts: Homeward
True Story presents its first curated collection of short documentaries, exploring notions of home: where life begins, how it feels to be exiled, what gives us meaning and makes us feel grounded.
In BREAKFAST IN KISUMU, Rok Ajulu talks of life as a freedom fighter in exile, and the journey back to his African homeland; MOTHERLAND follows 3 men deported from their home in the UK, having to make home in countries they barely know; HYDEBANK witnesses a young man serving a long prison sentence, glimpsing his future home life. NO MAN’S LAND goes on a journey with women forced to leave their home country, in order to start a family; and in MY NAME IS ANIK, a young woman starts learning Kurdish to connect with her grandmother’s birthplace.
These films have won numerous awards at international film festivals across the world and are presented on True Story in this newly curated collection for the first time.
