A memoir of losing a home in Miami, in 1930, becomes the sister tale to a foreclosure in 2013. Unable to accept the loss of her foreclosed home, the filmmaker’s mother recounts its rooms as she reminisces. Photographs and abstractly animated details of the house alternate with the 1930s memoir, echoing the cyclical qualities of both economic depressions and of trauma.
Foreclosed Home Movie screens on Friday, February 7 at 5:30 pm, preceding the feature film De Lo Mio.
