Winner of the Australian Film Critics Circle Prize for Best Documentary, this is a candid and moving portrait of Maria and Carlos Robles, a married couple who relocated to suburban Melbourne in the mid-1980s at the height of El Salvador’s civil war. As in much of his later work, Zubrycki, himself a son of Polish migrants, explores the complex feelings and notions around home and homeland, migration and exile, weaving a compelling narrative through the Robles’ lives that speaks to the profound impact of displacement on one’s own sense of identity and belonging.
