In an interview with SEE NL, Dutch director Suzanne Raes discusses her new documentary "Where Dragons Live", which will premiere at the Sheffield Doc Fest. The film explores the lives of an eccentric, brilliant and sometimes dysfunctional English upper-class family who must leave their old, sprawling home in Oxfordshire. Initially intended to explore the representation of dragons in different cultures, the focus shifts to what dragons symbolize: the fears and misunderstood aspects of childhood. Using old 8mm films and numerous family artifacts, Raes reveals the complex family dynamics and the different memories of their parents. The production, started without a budget, later received support from various funds and the Dutch release is provided by Cinema Delicatessen.
