I'm Not From Here

Hit festival short doc tells poignant tale of old age

I'm Not From Here "I'm here every day? I thought I went home. That I was at home." Josebe lives in a Chilean nursing home. Everyday she wakes thinking it is her first day there and everyday she must realise it's not.
"We are Basque and nobody can take that away." For 88-year-old Josebe, cultural identity and memories of home are all she has left. Surrounded by Chileans who say she is Spanish, Josebe insists on celebrating her Basque homeland. She obsessively questions others about their past, but is frequently met with silence, leaving Josebe alone with visions of her youth across the Atlantic.
