The Living Room

In the far northern region of Norrbotten, near the Arctic Circle, where Sweden now sends many refugees, Palestinian architect Sandi Hilal explores the right to host.

How can simple acts of hospitality disrupt the dynamics of power between refugees and their host communities?

A short film that explores not what has been left behind, but what new arrivals bring with them.
