Due to the coronavirus outbreak, HOME is temporarily closed and this event will no longer be taking place.

We do not know yet how long this closure will last, but this will be at least until the end of March 2020. We will attempt to reschedule as many events as possible and if this is not possible, we will be contacting ticketholders to refund cancelled shows.

An expertly crafted drama from established director Carlos Sorín, this is an engaging tale of adoption and discrimination, and an interesting take on the old adage that it takes a village to raise a child.

Cecilia and Diego have recently moved to a remote village in Tierra del Fuego. Unable to conceive children, they have been on a lengthy adoption waiting list until the sudden arrival of 9-year-old Joel. The middle-class couple are eager to do the right thing, but the reality of parenting proves more difficult than predicted when some members of the local community turn against them. The accelerated parental learning process, and a conflict raised at the only local public school, will force them to re-examine their decisions and motivations.

Also screening as part of the Language Lab on Sat 14 Mar.
