ggWhen we decided to make a film about the Lebensort Vielfalt, we realized we were making a film about ourselves as well.
We wanted to meet elder people with whom we identified. In our encouters, we found stories that were familiar to our own. Stories of migration, struggle, and love.
In their stories, as in our lives, the meaning of care and the question of care overlap with Community, with the quest of feeling at Home.
Welcome Home is a film we wanted to make for the people living at the Lebesort Vielfalt and all the queer elders who are not supported by a community. Who have to decide whether to live alone or to move into an institutional elderly home, in danger of being discriminated and forced to go back to the closet.
Welcome Home is also a film about being queer. About people who live across borders, build communities and struggle to find new ways to care for each other.
