Film 5 Directions to my house
The film production is about migrant teenagers,
who are in many ways in transformation.
Based in their new homeland they try to
design rooms in my art class.
The film refers to the Mexican writer and activist
Juan Felipe Herrera and his poem
: 5 directions to my house.
To give directions to go back to a home is not
always possible; sometimes the house is a wreck
or has totally disappeared.
Can you still cross the border or can you only travel
without a body in your memories? How to design
your new life? Immigrant teenagers made an attempt
in the art class using paint, collage and frottage.
