Heimat Is a Space in Time

Heimat ist ein Raum aus Zeit

Germany/Austria, 2019, 218 min, Black and white

HEIMAT IS A SPACE IN TIME picks up the biographical pieces of a family torn apart through the end of the 19th and into the 20th century. It is about people who by chance found each other, only then to lose each other. Now it is their descendants, their children and grandchildren who are beginning to disappear.
