The documentary „Homes for Games“, 35min (work in progress) jumps into the thick of the Olympic reorganisation of the Imeretinskaya Bay in 2011-2012. Observing the microcosm of the bay, the shots document the process of turning an overgrown area into an extensively built-up urban area. The debris is not yet cleared away, old and new structures, destruction and installation overlap. The hugeness of the Olympic project and the new arena contrast starkly with what used to be the residents' houses. In „Homes for Games“ we meet three residents whose dealing with the relocation is both typical and contrasting. We see them in their old and new homes.
