Don't Get Too Comfortable
Shaima Al-Tamimi shares an introspective letter to her deceased grandfather reflecting on her ancestral migrational journey and its implications over 3 generations.
‘Don’t Get Too Comfortable’ is a heart felt introspective letter to my deceased grandfather.
The letter questions the continuous pattern of movement amongst Yemenis in diaspora. The
film fuses archival photographs, sourced footage, parallax animation, abstract videos to create an audio visual body of work that calls attention to the collective feeling of statelessness and sense of being felt by Yemeni (or non Yemeni) migrants.
