THE STORIES OF THINGS: House on a high rock

My Beautiful Stories

15-10-2021 • 11 mins

'As a child, I heard about the tall rock my grandmother used to live on, at the edge of the sea. I heard of the waves, crashing onto the shore, of their unmistakable sound, of the salt in the nostrils and the grilled fish for supper. '

SHOW NOTES: EPISODE 2 of series 4 - The Series of Things.

STORY:

Today's story tells of the few scarcity of belongings kept by my migrant grandparents.

DISCUSSION:

We ask what else migrants leave behind, apart from country, culture and sometimes family. Our discussion concludes with a meditation on what we possibly gain from forming connections with the migrant communities.

RECOMMENDATION:

This episode's recommendation is another film: THE WEEPING MEADOW which tells the story of a migrant community and also, of the harshness of war and all that war takes with it. The film is aesthetically pleasing, each frame is perfectly constructed and curated to the most minute details.
