Angela Schanelec’s wonderfully elusive and allusive films intrigue audiences with their enigmatic explorations of everyday human dilemmas.
Winner of the 'Best Director' prize at the 2019 Berlin Film Festival, I Was at Home, But... is a tender, profoundly moving portrait of a family living with love and loss. An exquisitely subtle and deeply affecting work, the film avoids easy exposition, trusting the audience to find connections in its elliptical narrative.
Beautifully shot, Schanelec’s elegantly radical films have a potent and mysterious power, achieving a masterful balance of quiet poetry, wry humour and raw emotion.
