Recently featured as a key on-camera person (Interviewee) in a Documentary called “WHERE IS HOME?” which recently aired in Canada and was produced by Two Time Canadian Emmy Award Winner Paul Saltzman and Directed by Aga Alegria.

My role in the film explains the highlights, challenges and experience of living life as an Expatriate.

The process of being interviewed in this documentary eventually led me to take interest in learning more about the heritage of my parents country which was achieved by photographing Carnival in Trinidad & Tobago. In doing so, I found myself primarily focusing on Traditional Carnival Characters and J'ouvert as it is more culturally and historically relevant to the origins and roots of this celebration.

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN ASKED, OR ASKED YOURSELF THE QUESTION ... "WHERE IS HOME?"

The meaning of the word home brings up different things for different people. Is home a place? a feeling? or something more? Whatever home is to each one of us, the search for belonging, understanding and community is a universal one.

But how has the search for home changed in a globalizing world, where more and more people are able to travel and move?

If you've ever felt out of place and struggled with the question, "Where is home?" then this is a film we believe can inspire you to thrive through your restlessness and begin to understand that the search for "Home" is ultimately a journey of self-discovery.

WHAT THIS FILM IS ABOUT:

"WHERE IS HOME?" is a film exploring the concept of "Home", raising questions on what defines how important home is to each individual human being.

Our documentary explores the existential quest for home through the eyes of those who have grown up moving between different countries. Known as Third Culture Kids, these people have never had one fixed place to call home, and often question if "home" means something beyond a place we were born in, or grew up in, or what our ethnicity or passport is.

  • The meaning of home is something that travelers, dreamers, poets, philosophers and have all pondered, and this film tells the stories of five Third Culture Kids from around the world who both juggle and struggle with the meaning of home. By sharing their conclusions, we hope you will be moved to see that the journey home begins as a search for self-acceptance and ends only when we look inside ourselves. We also hope you come to appreciate the many wonderful qualities that result from growing up among the diversity of cultures on our planet ... qualities that are becoming very relevant in the age of globalization.
