A Divine Call

Moral questions and the search for identity come together in this short documentary about what ‘home’ means as an halve European, halve African child.

By combining old and new footage Festus Toll(We Will Maintain, IDFA 2017) explores his bicultural identity in an experimental and essayistic way, that comes close to a hip-hop videoclip. The film balances between the Netherlands and Kenya, fear and hope, failure and happiness, homelessness and home, what others make of you and who you really are.
