A poetic nod to Abbas Kiarostami’s 1987 film, “Where is my friend’s house?” addresses the issue of loss and forced exile but also reconstruction, between memories, dreams and nightmares. Lost house, destroyed house, dream house, home invented … each of the artists with its history, its fractures and its humor, its poetry and its revolt, makes emerge a vibrant and sensitive world that tells us something else of the reality.
