Being HMONG. A Family Encounter / Teaser
With the working title “The Hmong Diaspora in the Swabian Jura” a filmic snapshot of a family has been created, that lives as a small ethnic minority in Baden-Württemberg, now in its third generation. Central questions of identity and self-perception were elaborated on site together with the family and then subsequently transposed into a flexible shooting script, allowing for impromptu changes and ideas, contributed by family members, to be taken into account. The key aspects taken up by this Humboldt Lab project were the ideas of multiple perspective and contemporary relevance, thereby picking up on the Humboldt-Forum’s main themes.
