Finding Home

Directing: Maria Stanisheva

Synopsis

Finding Home is an animated documentary series telling the stories of climate refugees from around the world and setting out to reimagine the notion of 'home'. Each episode features the testimony of an actual environmental refugee uprooted from their home and forced to relocate to strange new lands, and uses the power of animation to convey raw emotion and reveal the life-shattering effects of climate change. Our pilot episode follows Antonia Jardenia da Silva from Brazil: a climate refugee forced to move from her home village to the big city in order to take care of her newborn baby as it struggles with microcephaly. The story sheds light on the period of drought in Northeastern Brazil, the subsequent Zika epidemic caused by a mosquito-transmitted virus, and Jardenia's attempts to feel like she belongs.
