Keicheyuhea follows the artist’s grandmother, Zayanu Khasueva, as she returns to her home village for the first time since her family’s deportation 73 years earlier. Keicheyuhea, a remote mountain settlement in the Galanchozh region of Chechnya, remained a closed territory under Soviet rule and has only recently become accessible to its former residents. In the artist’s first multi-shot video the voice of Zayana Khasueva accompanies the arduous journey into the mountains.
