Duration: 10:37 min

Home Sweet Home Suvela is a video portrait of Terho and his home in Suvela, Espoo, where Terho had lived for 16 years before he was evicted from his home. Suvela is said to be the most troubled area in Espoo, with lots of immigrants and high unemployment rates. The city of Espoo is trying to improve the area by forcefully gentrifying it and by inviting more desirable residents to move in to replace the current ones, which means that people like Terho will need to find new homes for themselves.
