Synopsis

Alicia is one year old when she is removed from her home. Via a foster family she is placed into a children’s care home when she is five. By the time she is nine, she is still there, awaiting placement with a new family. This is when the documentary ALICIA starts. For three years the film follows the girl in her daily life in close-cropped, observing images. These make the desires and powerlessness of the young, homeless Alicia, as well as the impact of a lack of perspective, palpable. Will the girl derail because of the hopelessness of her situation or are we witness to an inescapable history that repeats itself? Maasja Ooms directed, filmed and edited ALICA to make a poignant film about a universal theme: our need for love.
