SYNOPSIS

Laila and Roshni, two trans women, are looking for a house after they are evicted from the place they rented. It soon becomes evident that their search for a home is also their ongoing search for a place in this society that wants to keep them away in a section that cannot be the center. 

PROGRAM NOTE

A Place of Our Own begins with a threat to the home. A home that should be peaceful and safe turns into an uneasy and dangerous space due to a man knocking at the door with a loud voice. Laila and Roshni, who have been terrified, are rather kicked out of the house after hearing "your existence was the problem." All because they are trans women. Their journey to find a new home becomes a process of facing prevalent discrimination and hatred against minorities. Why is it so difficult to find a safe space and our place? Instead of sinking into sadness, the film listens to the trivial joy of the characters and tries to capture their elegant grace to the fullest. In particular, between ignorance and misunderstanding and pity and hatred, the shining friendship captured by the film is very beautiful. Friends are willing to be each other's safety net in difficult situations. Of course, the film already knows that there is loneliness that must be handled alone. A Place of Our Own, completed as a collaborative work, reflects the real experiences and appearances of queer and non-professional actors. The story is brief, but the attitude to not lose dignity and straightforward gaze toward the conditions of life embedded in the film leaves a deep impression.  [Programmer SON Sinae]
