Fantasy Fantasy

Kaspar Astrup Schröder, Denmark, 2018

33 min.DK/Documentary

Shot over three years, the film follows the two twin girls Molly and Smilla in a crucial time of their lives, from age 11 to 15. The girls are diagnosed with autism and are not like the other children. They must learn to live with the awareness of being different. We experience them as they grow from belonging to the same safe bubble to stepping out into the world as two confident, strong girls, with the film ending as Molly takes a big leap and starts at a continuation school.
