On A Small Island, In A Big Island

17:00 min
English subtitles

On A Small Island, In A Big Island is a short film that poetically looks into a family history of coming and going.

During my grandfather’s life, he amassed a comprehensive archive of film and slides that show a life lived in movement: from Suriname, to The Netherlands, to Curacao. Through glimpses and intimate details he’s captured, I try to explore my own feelings regarding the inheritance of movement and longing.
