At Home in the World

Andreas Koefoed, Denmark, 2015

59 min.DK/Documentary

In Denmark, there is a school for refugee children from all over the world. Here they are taught while they wait for their cases to be treated. Most children have arrived with their parents, a few of them without. Many have experienced war or violence at close range and live with traumas. All of them lost their home. The film follows a class for a year and creates an intimate portrait of a group of children as they try to adapt, learn a new language, make new friends and create a new home in the world.

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.
