Battistinis, THIS MUST BE THE PLACE. . . . . .

Battistinis, THIS MUST BE THE PLACE. . . . . .

There's no place like home. It's where we live, work and dream. It's our sanctuary and our refuge. We can love them or hate them. It can be just for the night or for the rest of our lives. But whoever we may be, we all have a place we call home.

Allan Hill has what seems to be a sort of sad optimism. Through circumstances that aren’t really ever explained, he lives (legally mind you) in one of the last inhabitable buildings of the original Packard plant. His space appears to be a the home of a reckless junk collector. His face has a grief-stricken slant to it. His clothes are torn and dirty. His words are down and out. But somehow, he still seems optimistic in this strange sort of way.

THIS MUST BE THE PLACE is a series of short films that explore the idea of home; what makes them, how they represent us, why we need them.
