Jag var där
Ina Porselius

In this film I’ve used video footage from my childhood that my dad has filmed. The video material goes in a loop while the members of my family tell their memories from the different situations.

The film is about memories and time. What do we remember and what have we forgotten? How do we look back on the different situations? I try to create a shared history from four different stories, a shared memory.
