"I'm not from here": the participants of the Docudays UA Human Rights Movie Club discussed self-identification issues

On August 23, the Docudays UA “Human Rights” Movie Club held a meeting at the Faculty of History of Mariupol State University. Participants watched a documentary by Chilean filmmaker Maya Alberdi and Lithuania director Giedre Zitkita's "I'm not from here". 

At the beginning of the event, the club's manager Svitlana Arabadzi, associate professor of the History Studies Department, suggested to the audience to identify three traits that characterize them, for example, by the field of activity, social group, etc. In addition to regular members of the club, the meeting was attended by Olexandra Nabiyeva, Communication Manager of the Docudays UA festival and Movie Clubs.


"I'm not from here" introduces viewers to the history of Josebe who lives in the Chilean home for elderly people. The main character constantly thinks about her youth and wants to know where her senior cohabitants come from.
 

The film sparked a lively debate about the locals, how they can be defined, as the protagonist moved from Spain to Chile and has a Basque background. I was amazed that an older woman defended her identity. The Basque language is a special treasure for her to keep. The movie prompted me to think about my identity,
