At night lions loose the grouping of their prides and in the early hours of the morning they call to one another in an effort to reassemble.    In this work I have created a sequences of lions calling to one another, but each time the individual lion roars a subtitle like one in a foreign film appears with the title "Go Home".  In this work I am playing with the use of language, translation and interpretation.  The lion's call is being interpreted as "Go Home" instead of "Come Home".  The short video loops and comments on the structures of cinematic narrative, while asking the question what does it mean to "Go Home".
