The World of Buster

Bille August, Denmark, 1984

91 min.DK/FeatureChildren's films

Buster is a pre-teen kid with a fanciful background. His father is a magician, albeit out-of-work, and his grandfather got shot out of a cannon for a living. But Buster's present is not much fun. At school, he is mobbed. At home, he must care for a handicapped sister. Still, he remains an optimist, and he has a vivid imagination. As he says, "People with both feet on the ground don't hang from trees."

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.
