Amanda Kernell, Denmark, 2013

25 min.DK/Short fictionFilm school films

Charlotte and her husband Mads live a good but lonely upperclass life without children. An educational project for Thai girls seems to be the way out of boredom and into charity's limelight for Charlotte. The teenage girl Joy is moved from Thailand to Denmark to be installed in their upper class villa, complete with swimming pool. But Joy is not at all interested in Charlotte's care nor her offer of education and makes it very difficult for Charlotte to be the good person she so desperately wants to be.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
