ROOM 26.10.12

Long term personal project 
During an assignment for Fedasil (Belgian federal agency for the reception of asylum seekers) I met a young Serbian family, Shaban, Haria and their four children. They had come to Belgium in 1998 and were still awaiting their decisive answers with regard to their visa when I met them in 2008. Especially Haria intrigued me as a person. She seemed both so strong and confident and yet so fragile and naïve. I felt drawn to them and that s how I started to visit them regularly and make a documentary series on their live in their 12m2 room in which they squandered most of their time worrying about their future.
