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.
