Home - a documentary about loneliness and aging in a globalized world

"Home" is a documentary about the suffering and uprooting caused by globalization. It is a portrait of Lilia, a Colombian woman who has lived in eight countries throughout her life. Now growing older she more and more feels an identity limbo torn between worlds. Who is her family? Where is her home?

SINOPSIS

At 65 years of age, Lilia has lived longer outside her native country than in Colombia. As a pioneer of mass globalization of the 70ies, she asks herself what her final destination will be after having lived in eight countries. She realizes that aging in a globalized society means to be confronted with loneliness.

This documentary tries to answer the questions: How is it to grow old in a world full of globetrotters? Who is family? What and where is home? As a documentarian and Lilia's daughter these questions leads me to take on a personal trip from Berlin to Portugal and Colombia.

Play Teaser >>>

"HOME" is a documentary that reflects our rapidly aging society in a world and a time when more and more families live scattered throughout several countries. We are 214 million migrants around the world.
At the same time, "HOME" explores the possibility that the story of my mother could be the mirror of my generation's future - this generation of ours that knows no barriers or borders, that loves to travel, to live here, fall in love there, and then work someplace else. Is our future a lonely one?

It is through my Colombian mother Lilia and her life in Portugal that we begin to understand that aging is not just worrying about pensions, but about choosing how, where and with whom you would like to spend the last days in this world. But how do you decide if your family is far away and at the same time you are a foreigner in the country you live in?

IN THE MEDIA

Our "test shoot" in Portugal attracted the attention of many people. Within days, the video published in the magazine P3 had 3000 clicks!

WHY THE CAMPAIGN

"HOME" is a documentary about globalization being developed in three countries : Germany , Portugal and Colombia . Its visual style is a mixture of animation and Full HD images.
These two aspects are the reason for the budget of the film being high.

We need 20 days of filming and every shooting day costs about 3500 Euros .
Apart from this there are also costs like: technical equipment (camera, lights, etc.) , legal advice, postage, telephone / communications, website.

So far the project, which we have been developing for eight months now, was financed entirely by me and by crew members.
BUT: now we need to reach the level of PRODUCTION and we have no resources left.
There are 214 million migrants in the world, so this documentary has great relevance for today's society.
Thats why we need you to be part of this project, so that together we help "HOME" get onto the screens. We can do this with YOUR help!

The campaign is an "all or nothing" campaign and lasts 40 days. That means we only have 40 days to reach the goal of 5000 Euro . If we don't achieve that goal, we will receive NOTHING and your contribution will NOT be charged . That is why we need ALL of your help. Each contribution will help, however small it is .

If we reach the 5000 Euro and the campaign is still active, we will try to reach the 7000 Euro benchmark.

HOW WE WILL USE YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS

2000 Euro - editing material recorded in June 2013
2000 Euro - development of animation
1000 Euro – website design

If the contributions made reach 7000 Euro, the remaining 2000 Euro will be used as followed :
1000 Euro - technical equipment for shooting
500 Euro - 2 flights to Portugal in March / April 2014
500 Euro - Legal advice

CALENDAR

If we get funded thanks to this campaign, we will immediately start editing the material we've already recorded in Portugal. We are planing on finishing this edition in January / February 2014. This will help us convince potential co-producers and financiers of the visual and narrative strength of the project. In addition, we will develop the animation we want to develop thanks to your support.
In December we will design and then publish the website for the documentary.

PERKS

All the perks are unique as we want to offer something special to those who believe in the project now that it most needs it!
The protagonist has prepared handmade decorations and we have typical shoulder bags from her home country, Colombia .
So hurry up because these rewards are limited! :-)
There are also other rewards such as posters or tickets for the Premiere.



!!! THANK YOU !!!!
