NARRATING THE INTIMATE

I Don’t Feel At Home Anywhere Anymore

by Viv Li, 2021 (China, Belgium)

Belgium | 16 min | Original Version, English Subtitles

Viv Li, who lives abroad for her studies, visits her family in her native China. She spends simple moments there, often marked by boredom. This film, which reflects the increasing alienation of the director from her family and her home as much as that of the Euro-American population from China, is striking for its intimate character, its lightness, but also for its sense of humor.

 

Viv Li, the director and protagonist of this short film, had a career in comedy in the UK and China before turning to film production.

The film I Don’t Feel at Home Anywhere Anymore, which she made as part of her Master’s degree, has been screened at 9 festivals around the world, including the IDFA in Amsterdam, the Beijing International Short Film Festival and the Encounters International Documentary Film Festival in Cape Town.
