Film Description:
"Childhood can be a chaotic time, especially if you're bouncing back and forth between two continents. With engaging candour and gentle humour, the director offers up images from her family album. In drawing on the bewildering events of her rootless early years, she fleshes out an uncertain identity and takes control of her life. Using drawings on paper and digitized snippets of fabric, Obom creates a whimsical world of simple lines and pastel tones. Carried along by a playful, jazzy score, her film soothes old wounds and celebrates a life filled with magic and mayhem."
