Available on iTunes, MUBI, Prime Video
I Was at Home, But… tells the story of Astrid (Maren Eggert), a forty-something mother of two, struggling to regain her balance in the wake of her husband’s death. Her adolescent son Phillip (Jakob Lassalle) disappeared for a week and now that he has returned, he faces disciplinary action at school and his toe requires amputation. In her signature elliptical style and with a gentle sense of humor, Schanelec weaves together a complex narrative web to create an indelible picture of a small community grappling with fundamental questions of existence.
