Abstract

In 1945, at the end of WWII, Ildiko’s grandmother, Lucia Rippel was expelled from her home in Silesia. With her two children and all her belongings dragged in a cart, she walked 220 miles across the fracture landscape of Europe to find a new home. This 18-minute film follows Zoo Indigo’s walk across Poland and Germany in 2015, retracing Lucia’s journey. Themes of home, migration, displacement, women and war are explored in this experimental travelogue entwining the sights, sounds and landscapes of Zoo Indigo’s travels alongside its historical context.
