Short doc Eigenheim

Short documentary on homelessness after detention

Project info:
How can you still feel at home somewhere after years of being detained? ‘Eigenheim’ tells the story of 24-year old April from Amsterdam who ended up on the streets after periods of detention. That life started early. She was 12 years old when she was evicted from home. All she had was a Big Shopper with some personal belongings.

The long road to a new home took her from shelters, the street, sofas at friends’ places, to her own appartment in Amsterdam. Today, her dog is helping April building a new life.
