HOME LOST, HOME NEW - JACOB LEVI / by Emma Barnaby

This is a short story based on numerous interviews with asylum seekers, migrants and refugees about their journeys and efforts to build a new home. We explored the issues that some people encountered, from access to healthcare, shelter and other basic human rights, to losing a home and building a new one.

This short experimental "docu-fiction" film is about social justice and seeing all migrants, refugees and asylum-seekers as people with a story and a future, as well as a past. Mobile phones are a key item that many migrants, refugees and asylum seekers use to help them on their journey and often are they only means they have for them to document their journey. This film was all shot using a mobile phone as well as some footage from the Medicine Sans Frontiers Footage Archive.
