So Where’s Home? is short film made as part of Adrian Bautista’s final year project at Georgetown University that explores the unique perspectives and identities of Third Culture Kids, people who have spent a significant portion of their childhood overseas. The purpose of this short documentary project is to understand why third culture kids struggle to answer the question of “so where’s home?” and the implications this difficulty has on personal identity.
The infamous question, “Where’s Home?” never fails to elicit an eye roll from a TCK. Its even more bothersome mirror image, “So, where are you from?” results in the appropriate response of a dejected sigh, before pulling out a thick and battered passport for an accurate answer. It’s a strange thing to lose track of, but sometimes, we honestly just don’t know.
