About the whole project

Scraps of hope project is a collaboration of a researcher Marjaana Jauhola and me as a documentarist. 12 mini documentaries are ready and above you can see two introductory poetic videos as part of the project. Rest of the videos are available for private screening at the moment and I will host some of them online here later this autumn.

Scraps of Hope offers a critical contribution to the study of post-conflict condition, complexities of rebuilding a city of Banda Aceh in Indonesia in the aftermath of the Indian Ocean earthquakes and the tsunami and thirty years of armed conflict. Following the lives of people through their everyday experiences, offers insights into the relations of power and structures of violence that are embedded in the peace.
