Home Sweet Home

Salimah is a refugee from Myanmar, who has been living in Malaysia since she was a newborn. Her father and her older sister fled to Denmark when she was only 1 year old, so she has been staying with her aunt in Malaysia ever since her mother remarried a violent man. Salimah is 10 years old when she gets a chance to be reunited with her father.

Katrine Philp’s graduation film Book of Miri (2009) was nominated for IDFA’s Best Student Award. The director’s first feature documentary, Dance for Me (2012), screened at IDFA and was nominated in 2015 for an Emmy Award.
