Uno es donde está / You are where you are
Project info

One of the most stressful parts of learning Spanish for many language learners is knowing the difference between ser and estar. Both mean to be, but in different ways, depending on whether the speaker intends to address an essential quality or a condition.

As a foreigner living in Buenos Aires, Belgian Sam Verhaert is intrigued by his own insider/outsider status. Is he really part of this concreted town (ser)? Or is his concrete mind still with his family and friends in the countryside of Belgium (estar)?

In the series 'Uno es donde está / You are where you are', Sam Verhaert explores this ambiguity with pictures made with a cell phone.
