ABOUT THE FILM: In the world’s favorite democracy, live thousands of men, women and children with lost homes and forgotten names. Sheltering one of the largest refugee populations in the world, India still lacks a comprehensive domestic refugee law that could guarantee them their basic human needs and a life of dignity.

In Search of My Home is a journey with a Burmese and an Afghan family, as it explores the complexities in their everyday battle for survival. Weaving their emotional stories of hope and despair, love and loss, the film uses live-action, photography, music and text narratives to tell a story that is absent from India’s collective conscience and its mainstream media.

ABOUT THE FILM MAKERs: Sushmit Ghosh and Rintu Thomas are award-winning filmmakers who have worked on issues exploring gender and sexuality, HIV AIDS, street children, differently-abled people and climate change. Their films have premiered at international film festivals and broadcast on TV networks and are also being used as advocacy and resource mobilization tools by various organizations across the world.
