You Are in My Story

This documentary was created by filmmaker Floor Hofman in collaboration with residents of a residential care facility for people with developmental disabilities. During her stay of several months in the facility, Floor provided residents with cameras to capture moments in their daily lives.

Telling Stories Together

The aim of this project, conducted as part of an artist-in-residence program, was to get to know the residents' views of the world. Next to providing residents with cameras, Floor also conducted interviews with residents, parents, and caretakers, gathering diverse perspectives to help in understanding the meaning of the residents' recorded moments. This collaborative project led Floor, along with the caretakers and parents, to rethink their expectations. The resulting documentary, ‘You Are in My Story,’ portrays this process, incorporating footage filmed by the residents themselves. Through their recordings, viewers are invited into a world where vulnerability and resilience intertwine.
