Watch the ‘Becoming Home’ Documentary

For an activity that doesn’t involve leaving home, this is perfect. Becoming Home saw a premiere at Lido Connect last Wednesday on November 17 2021. This Thai documentary revolves around the various life aspects of stateless people in Thailand by telling the stories of their lives, friendships, wounds, and dreams. Becoming Home is narrated through the eyes of six stateless men and women and touches upon social issues like commuting, education, basic rights, and social welfares. It is presented by the United Nations Development Programme in association with the European Union.

Watch the trailer here. ‘Becoming Home’ is available until 31 December 2021. For more information, visit Documentary Club’s website.
