A Home in Memory

Helena Öst

A home in Memory examines the relationship between identity and the surrounding space. What is it like to abandon a home which carries traces from several generations? The short film shows an almost 300 m2 apartment in the very centre of Helsinki and how it is being emptied, picture by picture. Visually, the film consists of still photos only. On the sound track we hear two sisters discussing, the sounds of the apartment and the surroundings.
