At Home But Not at Home
Suneil Sanzgiri, USA 2019, 11 min.

The essayistic short The Sea Runs Thru My Veins is an assemblage of multiple post-migrant voices from different geopolitical spheres. At Home But Not at Home evokes postcolonial memories through the use of contrasting footage. Together with cartographic appropriation and re-mapping in Sewing Borders and the use of opacity, rumours and secrets in Endnote, each of these short films reflect queer, counter-narrative aesthetics and decolonial knowledge. Here we can explore (un)seen subjects and how they cross over to occupy new bodily spaces.
