“Patrida” means home country, fatherland in Greek. In this documentary, actress Ayça Damgacı tells us about her visit to the lands where her 87-year-old West Thracian father Ismet Damgacı was born and left due to forced migration.

Ayça Damgacı’s touchingly personal documentary about her father’s roots elegantly retraces the routes of forced migration. A journey that starts in Istanbul, continues to Thessaloniki, and culminates in Zurich, Patrida serves as a palimpsest for profound meditations on identity and belonging.
