Filmform presents Out of Place

Details from the future, Joanna Lombard

Many people’s daily lives are characterized by a constant search for identity and sense of belonging. This programme focuses on video works where the feeling of being an outsider is prominent and where the human search for belonging is palpable, whether it concerns family members, or the question of one’s own identity. The contributors all have something in common, they depict other cultures than the Swedish one and look at Sweden from a different point of view.

The title is taken from Edward W. Said’s memoir “Out of Place”.
”Nationality, background, real origins and past actions all seemed to be sources of my problem; I could not in any convenient way lay the ghosts that continued to haunt me from school to school, group to group, situation to situation.”
“To me, nothing more painful and paradoxically sought after characterizes my life than the many displacements from countries, cities, abodes, languages, environments that have kept me in motion for many years”
“It was also at this point I felt that coming from a part of the world that seemed to be in a chaotic transformation became the symbol of what was out of place about me.”

Thanks to Camilla Bauer for translation and recommending “Out of Place”. And The Cinematheque
