tu


9:38, 16mm b+w, 2020
narrative short film

Written & Directed by Suzanne Friesen

"tu" translates to "here", in the Polish language.


Here we are, in a film where memories, identity, and inter-generational trauma and diaspora become merged and confused. Several voices culminate in unrest, but in parallel, one unshakeable and foundational truth remains: “I am here.”


This film explores a meditative respite from the human condition.
