Gone Home

director: Pegah Moemen Attare
original title: Gone Home
country: Belgium
year: 2020
running time: 19 min.


Pegah Moemen Attare discovers a letter from her grandmother, sent 20 years ago, which has gone unanswered. These phantom words, written in another era, and this other country, Iran, serve to retrace the souvenirs of a place that no longer exists, through three generations of women. A film by way of an impossible correspondence, a poetic and political journey through the memory of exile.


Born in Tehran, Pegah Moemen Attare’s interest in art started developing in the early years. As a child, she found her passion for creating children’s plays. At the age of 12, she left Iran with her family and started a new life in Belgium. After graduating high school, she attended the University of Leuven where she studied dentistry. With the childhood dream of ever becoming a filmmaker lingering the mind, she decided to put her degrees aside and so she attended LUCA School of Arts.
