Always a Stranger in a Foreign Place

by Agnese Perri 

‘Always a Stranger in a Foreign Place’ is an intimate reflection on the absence of belonging that comes with lacking stability in one’s sense of home. A videopoetry filmed in Hong Kong, it explores both Agnese Perri’s personal experiences in the constant ebbs and flows of what is home, as well as the impact on ‘home’ due to the wider political landscape in which it was made.
