Dir. Jacqueline Zünd - 2019 - Switzerland - Subtitles in English
Parents split up, a family falls apart. Two separate worlds emerge from what once was considered a unity. In constant transition, children now live between two homes. WHERE WE BELONG approaches their reality and focuses on how fragile children are, but also how brave, smart and funny they respond to their situation.
"My son has two homes. There you have it already: In German there is no plural for the word 'home'. In his class, my son was the only kid with separated parents, at least that‘s what it seemed like. The divorce rate in Switzerland is 50 percent. Apparently it’s still cause for shame when the ideal of the happy family collapses – even though we have long known that the nuclear family is the place where our neuroses come from. I was interested in this paradox." Jacqueline Zünd
