WHEN YOU HEAR THE DIVINE CALL
NETHERLANDS / KENYA 20 MIN, 2020
Moral questions and the search for identity come together in this short documentary about what ‘home’ means as an half European, half African child.
Festus often brings moral questions and the search for identity together in his films. By combining old and new footage he explores his bicultural identity in an experimental and essayistic way. His previous film We Will Maintain (2017) was striking and screened at IDFA that same year.
