Video as ‘moving portrait’

As the film was not directed or held any particular narrative right until the editing process, the film requires the process of weaving a narrative through clips that captures the essence of everyday family life, from my personal point of view. The thread that holds the film together therefore, were narration and pieces of interviews conducted over the course of the fieldwork.   The film, therefore does not shine the objective truth, but rather emphasizes on the importance of establishing my worldviews. It becomes an expression of my emotional journey as a student trying to re-discover and make sense of the relationships that were created in the process of filming.
