Thomas Gleeson’s ‘HOME’ short documentary gives us a moment to think about what it is that makes a house, a home.

Roger Donaldson on behalf of the NZIFF describes ‘HOME’ as, “A beautifully photographed minimalist documentary.”

Gleeson proposes the question, “We often think of houses as solid, permanent things but in fact they can be weak, fragile and as this film shows very mobile. What gives them their strength?”
