Full Frame 2019: 'Where We Belong' director discusses impact of divorce on children

(04/19/19 4:04am)

For its North American premiere, “Where We Belong” screened at Full Frame Documentary Film Festival earlier this month.

It features interviews with five children on their experiences, paired with ethereal close-ups of their faces, engulfed by intense lighting and music that evokes their specific, complicated and often hard-to-express internal struggles. The documentary gives voice to those who are usually voiceless, largely through their wonderfully genuine and surprisingly mature insights. The Chronicle spoke with Swiss director Jacqueline Zünd via email about her intentions behind the film and what she learned from the children she interviewed.
