Filmed on Super 8mm, Scenes from a Transient Home presents a fractured portrait of life for Zimbabwean migrants when they travel back home to visit. Christmas dancing, New Year’s Eve celebrations, house floods, and illegal gold panning are just a few of the events filmed by Roger Horn, who bookends the film with a major life event for his own family.
