ABOUT THE DOCUMENTARY IN CONCERT:

What does it mean being a citizen of the world? Traveling every few years, moving yourself and your family through the world? How connected do you stay to your roots? What is most important? The destination or the journey?

Third Culture Kids are the people raised in a culture other than their parents’ or the culture or their country of nationality. They live in a different environment during a significant part of their child development years. How do expats with children approach the TCK? What are the advantages, the disadvantages? How can the situation become better?

Where do they belong? Are they citizens of everywhere or nowhere?

What does arriving mean? What does leaving? TCK develop an identity that is rooted in people rather than places.

We explore these answers through speech, music, art.

Original Music: Alexandros Tsikouras

Musician: Stavros Kekes

Created & Directed by Theodora Voutsa
