The road to school
Now showing at Noorderlicht Festival until the 3rd of October
Shown at Bredaphoto
In short computer-animated videos, I follow five people on their way from their parental home to their high school. Each story is one about growing up and how this resulted in how we look to our national identity. The stories cover issues like racism, privilege and injustice, and while all stories are different, they all find themselves with mutual feelings of isolation, alienation and the desire to belong to a community. The project is a reflection to an increasinly polarised and politicized society.
