Grandmother in a Boat: Bloody Foreigner (2017), 9 min

Grandmother in a Boat is a series of videos (currently two), which consists of Vella Pihlak telling the story of how she escaped from Estonia with her family just before the Soviet invasion in 1942. This video, the second, subtitled Bloody Foreigner, tells about how she was accepted as a refugee in Sweden and later in Australia. I started the project as a series to mirror the current refugee crisis in Europe.
