Ich war zuhause, aber...
The films of Angela Schanelec have bewitched and mystified audiences with her unique, elliptical depictions of everyday life.
Winner of the 'Best Director' prize at the 2019 Berlin Film Festival, I Was at Home, but... explores the impact of a devastating tragedy on a family, as they come to terms with grief, longing and life after the death of a loved one.
Schanelec’s films have a rhythm and tone all their own, and I Was at Home, but... achieves a remarkable balance of quiet poetry, wry humour and raw emotion.

2019 San Sebastián Festival / Winner: Zabaltegi-Tabakalera Award

“Exquisitely cryptic.” Guy Lodge, Variety
