somewhere in between

HD video / 07:00 min. / 2016

The video Somewhere in Between reflects on the Indo diaspora after the decolonization of the Dutch East Indies (nowadays Indonesia). Hundreds of thousands of people of Eurasian heritage were forced to leave the country after the Bersiap period (the bloody separation between the Netherlands and its colony).

The narration of the video conflates a number of comments left on online Indo community networks. Shaped like a stream of thoughts — Somewhere in Between highlights different aspects of the process to redefine identity and culture.

Somewhere in Between is one narrative in an interchanging world of migratory experiences. These particular migrating stories re-contextualize the past and give us insight to the present.
