narrative short film

Written & Directed by Suzanne Friesen

"tu" translates to "here", in the Polish language. In a Canadian context, we are used to seeing "tu" represent the French translation of the informal "you."

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

This film explores a meditative respite to the human condition.
