We The Homeless (2020)
A family of four escapes from war, imprisonment and insecurity. But the peacefulness that meets them in the new country is deafening in a completely different way.
For when everything is in order, and life is finally to be lived, a different kind of struggle starts. They must fight to settle and accept the memories of their homeland.
While the rest of the family manage to find their place, the mother has a harder time. She can neither let go of suspicion nor pride - not to mention the rage of not being treated as the resourceful person she used to be in this new country. This turns out to have fatal consequences.
Premiering at the National Theater in Norway the 14th of March 2020.
I don't understand this place.
It's too calm.
Isn't that nice?
Yes, but there is something lurking behind it.
And Alice, the girl our daughter is playing with -
They are just children.
You don't understand.
What don't I understand?
It's too quiet here.
I do not believe in this silence.
It's a camouflage.
And look, there's Alice!
Now they are running towards the forest again -
That's not how it should be.
You have to sit down for a moment.
And I should make some tea soon.
I'm going to start arranging the kitchen.
Maybe get some seeds.
Plant some herbs.
I will do that.
If only our daughter could stay inside -
I just cannot let her run outside like that.
