Kids on the Silk Road

200 min.Series (documentary)

In the countries of the Silk Road we meet 15 children – one character in each film – on the threshold of adolescence, who are all fighting for a space and an identity of their own, and who all show bravery by taking action on the things that matter to them. With recognizable themes – friendship, love, wishes for the future, parents’ ambitions – which is part of every child’s life, we hope to eliminate geographical and cultural gaps between our main characters and their Danish audience.

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.
