This place we call our home

Thora Lorentzen, Sybilla Marie Tuxen, 30 min, Denmark.

In this film war is an atmosphere, rather than a series of journalistic facts. Through music we visit all layers of society. In the form of a poem we show how it feels when your country is in an unwinnable conflict. Dusk sets the scene for a war that came unexpectedly. The soldier smokes his last cigarette in the window before taking the elevator to certain death. A mother prays for the sons of Ukraine. A babushka at Maidan sings: “If he meets death – may it be instant”.
