► FEATURING

· ABOUT HOME·

An Afro-German young adult is taking you on a journey to find a home in the country they grew up in. What does “home” mean for someone who never really had that feeling? What does “home” mean for someone who, because of their appearance, was systematically made to “the other” ? “Home?” is a movie full of questions but full of humor, a stream of consciousness and a declaration of love to everything that let’s you be exactly who you are.

· Elliot Blue ·

Elliot Blue is a multidisciplinary artist but understands themself mainly as a lighting designer and a filmmaker. In their films Elliot tries both to process their own reality as well as giving people, who are generally misrepresented and underrepresented
in media, a way to show themselves to the world in a self-empowering way but also to create a medial landscape beyond tokenism by enabling a discussion about life circumstances of people who tend to be forgotten.

· ÜBER HOME ·

Ein afro-deutscher junger Mensch nimmt Sie mit auf eine Reise, um in jenem Land, in dem er aufgewachsen ist, ein Zuhause zu finden. Was bedeutet „Heimat“ für jemanden der nie wirklich dieses Gefühl hatte? Was bedeutet „Heimat“ für jemanden der aufgrund seines Aussehens systematisch zu „dem Anderen“ gemacht wurde? “Home?” ist ein Film voller Fragen, aber voller Humor, ein Bewusstseinsstrom und eine Liebeserklärung an allem was uns genau die Person sein lässt, die man ist.

· Elliot Blue ·

Elliot Blue ist ein multidisziplinärer Künstler* doch versteht sich hauptsächlich als Lichtdesigner* und Filmemacher.* In seinen Filmen versucht Elliot sowohl seine eigene Realität zu verarbeiten als auch Menschen, die in Medien generell falsch und unterrepräsentiert sind, eine Möglichkeit zu geben sich in selbstermächtigender Weise der Welt zu präsentieren und alternative Narrativen zu begründen, die in der Mehrheitsgesellschaft meistens ausgeblendet werden.
