'Home Sweet Home' investigates the theme of migration. It opens with the footage of post war British migrants to Australia, it is done so to show how comfortable they travelled to their destination, and how welcomed they were received. This is compared to the recent migration crisis and the journey of the migrants and their not so welcomed reception. This 'reception' is explored further with footage of political and social reaction to the crisis. Black and white is used to install a sense of dream, a technique used in Tarkovsky's early films. The video is distorted to emphasise the fact that the 'system' is broken. The pictorial code at the end of the video, translates to Home Sweet Home. Each of the symbols relates to the experiences of a Polish migrant: the letter home, mountains, priest carrying a cross, door to a new home etc. The design itself is reminiscent of Polish embroideries, especially the last symbol.
