Recounting the story of a young woman who escaped Sarajevo in 1992 and the decision she faced to either stay in Canada or return home and start again.

View full project description

This piece recounts the true story of a young woman who left her childhood home in Sarajevo in 1992. Past experiences that are relevant in today's world are explored: the plight of refugees that are desperate to migrate to a safe haven, their adaptation to a new way of life in a unfamiliar place, and their eventual choice between staying in Canada or moving back to their former war-torn home to begin again.

Her story is told though an abstract visual projection in combination with audio recordings, in a mix of languages. The video is a non-linear, erratic, dream-like narrative that will further echo the confusion and tension of her experience.
