- 2019 BERLIN -- Silver Bear Best Director
Winning the Silver Bear for Best Director at Berlinale in February, Angela Schanelec’s latest film is a non-narrative film-essay about existence, the body, and art. The film begins as 13-year-old Philippe returns home, as the title suggests, after missing for a week. His disappearance has prompted anxiety and panic with his parents and the school, and only gradually does everyday life get going again, but his return now initiates a blast of existential anxiety, and her mother now looks at family and art in a different way. The structure of the family disintegrates in order to form itself anew. A humorous and intelligent philosophical exercise, I Was At Home, But follows non-conventional filmmaking, leaving its audience pieces of imagery to collate and find their own answers.
This film was a Meetings on the Bridge participant.
