Title: Exil
Length: 3 min
Directed by: Emma Dominguez
Emma Dominguez Video Exil is an emotional story about betweenship. The work allows the viewer to see the suburb with a different look. A loving look, belonging to the generation that planted its worn out roots in the suburbs concrete. The theme exile is being processed in a contemporary Swedish context a different perspective then the normative, with the suburb and inheritance as a filter. Exil is an experimental short film that moves with image narrative, poetry and haptic perception / view as a method. Through poetry and emotion, Emma Dominguez tries to process the feeling of closeness and longing for a place that is no longer her. The theme of exile, inheritance and trauma is processed in relation to her mother’s body and legacy.

We see close-ups of concrete, walls and balconies, close-ups of a mother’s skin, hair and eyes, full images of skies, high-rise buildings and cement. A body that touches the walls knows the texture, a face, more close-ups and a voice that talks about a longing and a love declaration to the place.

Waryaa gives a part of their reality and challenges the medias traditional images that we are used to. “ – Swedish film database
