The things that make us who we are often go unnoticed. They are what we see everyday, the experiences we had as children, the little things unique to the places we spend our lives. We often see these things as a whole, something defined and steadfast, never really taking the time to consider all the little parts moving, growing and becoming that gradually change who we are. As Stuart Hall said “If you think of culture always as a return to roots — R-O-O-T-S — you’re missing the point. I think of culture as routes — R-O-U-T-E-S — the various routes by which people travel, culture travels, culture moves, culture develops, culture changes, cultures migrate”. Roots |Routes is a film that celebrates the little things that define our journey.
