This paper accompanies the film “Ode to Home” that was screened on June 30th, 2012. Both the film and the paper deal with the subject of displacement from the native culture and home. My aim is to look at how physical displacement from the place of strong emotional value, such as homeland, can fragment a person’s identity and throw them into a reactionary search for ideal home and identity.
