Synopsis

My Identity Is This Expanse! (2020) is a virtual reality film and installation that tells the story of a child resisting despair, who seeks relief through memories, imagination and the strength of poetry. Mahmoud Darwish’s poem If I Were Another is both the child‘s and the viewer’s entrance into this realm of relief and resilience. Combined with the memory of a missing mother and family, the poem guides and sustains the child amidst the grueling reality of exile, violence and confinement to a wooden box — both a hiding place and a mode of transport for refugee children. The journey is based on the true story of Yunus YUSUF, who was transported under these circumstances from Afghanistan to Luxembourg at the age of 13. It is also the story of millions of other refugee children and adults, both today and throughout history.
