The One to be Taken / Home by Miki Ambrózy
(20’ / 2012 / SIC)
The One to be Taken / Home is the first of in a series of films looking at family and memory. It is a video work I made while spending three weeks with a Medanese family at a temporary urban settlement in North-Sumatra. The film follows the structure of night and day, and the lives of Fitri, Julie, Talenta and others.
In this work I attempt to become part of a place unknown - to explore a landscape like a naive ethnographer, if that's possible at all. The film invites the spectator to experience simply being there, sitting by and walking with the family members and the children.
