My Room Is My Best Friend
The first film I made. I was a film editor for years already.
I have great respect for the children in this film, at the age of thirteen to nineteen.
As a migrant myself I believe in the right of people to migrate, regulated I mean. Human history is full of episodes of movements of peoples. The fear of the unknown and nonuniform is just as ancient. That fear becomes increasingly unreal and inadequate. In the 21st century, the globe is becoming smaller –viewed from the Western world- that should mean not only economical but also social changes. Differences should decline. The world should ‘be as one’.
This film shows the children as individuals, depicts their state of mind.
