Victoria & Siaka
Three years ago, Viennese artist Victoria and Siaka, a tolerated migrant from the Gambia, fled to Italy out of fear of Siaka's imminent deportation. In May 2021, they will return to Vienna as a married couple welded together by many struggles and periods of despair. The film will spend a year observing their new beginning in the city where they met and fell in love. Victoria will record private cell phone videos over this period, which will be condensed into a visual diary in the film and will serve as the couple's perspective to complement that of the film.
Victoria and Siaka is an exploratory journey into the cohabitation of an unusual and unconventional couple who must navigate the stark transition from flight and bondage to a new daily life in safety. Will their love and their relationship withstand the challenge of this everyday life?
