Abstract or Description

La Familia is an essay film in development that retraces a road trip taken with my family from Austria to Iran in the 1970s, across Hungary, the former Yugoslavia, Bulgaria and Turkey.

Entangling my subjective experience as a child migrant from revolutionary Iran with contemporary migration politics, La Familia aims to trouble perspectives on identity, belonging and ideas of political responsibility. I draw on counter-archival strategies to animate over, map, re-write the political shifts across Europe over time from migrant perspectives.
