You Are Here

John Di Stefano

2009, 64:50 minutes, colour, English, Italian, French with English Subtitles


YOU ARE HERE is an autobiographical film that reflects on the search for home within our era of transnational displacement. As the son of immigrants, the filmmaker examines shifting notions of home and belonging within the context of his ethnic origins, but also extends this into the realm of national and sexual identities and affiliations. The film chronicles his trajectory from his ancestral home in Italy, to his native Canada and beyond, and weaves a compelling and contemporary portrait shaped by memories of the past and the realities of the present.
