Portugal is Lilia’s last home, a 67-year old Colombian woman, whose life is marked by continuous migration. Josephine, the director of the documentary, offers her mother an instrument, cinema, to put together the story of a fragmented life. Through careful observation, Lilia’s loneliness becomes visible, but also her mysterious strength. Josephine explores her mother’s relationship with the spaces and environments she inhabits now, and the discomfort with places and decisions of the past. The meeting between mother and daughter, mediated by the film device, is filled with universal meaning and becomes a revealing dialogue between two people in transit: an adult woman and another younger woman, a subject who is filmed and the documentarist who is filming. “Home - the country of illusion” opens up big questions about freedom, loneliness and ideas of homeland and the sense of belonging.
