An experimental cinematic incursion into the journey of a Zimbabwean migrant family as they visit their native country, Scenes from a Transient Home is an intimate film that captures the affective dimension the anthropologist has developed with his field of study and the subjects of his research.
This singular work skilfully combines a reflection on ethnographic research with a home movie aesthetic.
