LOOKING FOR HOME – Interview with Filmmaker Alan Govenar

Author and Filmmaker Alan Govenar will be in person this Thursday, as Dallas VideoFest presents Alan’s wonderful documentary LOOKING FOR HOME.  Alan talked with our Gadi Elkon about his work, Looking for Home’s origins and so much more!

In today’s uncertain world, what is the meaning of home? Over the course of four years, local filmmaker Alan Govenar talked to more than 60 people around the globe about the ever-evolving ways we think and feel about one of our most basic needs – from a college student in Buenos Aires to a homeless couple living in a makeshift tent in the woods in Dallas, a hot dog vendor in New York City, an artist in Nairobi, and a man and woman whose unlikely relationship emerged during France’s Covid lockdown.

As global crises have left millions of people bound to and displaced from their physical habitats, LOOKING FOR HOME  resonates across time and place, searching for a deeper meaning of home — a concept universally embraced but now in an unprecedented state of flux.

Alan Govenar and Gadi talked about the origins of the film, his previous work and so much more.
