What feelings and meanings does ‘home’ evoke? And after leaving home, can you find those feelings anew? In the Israeli animator Daphna Awadish’s short film Journey Birds, several people residing in countries far from where they were born reflect on what it means to live in – and become part of – a different culture. Using a distinctive style that combines animation and printed frames of video to create her visually enchanting film, Awadish renders her human subjects as anthropomorphised birds to reflect on migration and how the concept of home entangles itself in identity.
