Reconstructing Dad

Sven Vinge, Denmark, 2017

76 min.DK/Documentary

Sven lost his dad, and now has the opportunity to remember and re-experience their relationship. He desperately tries to get his father’s attention, which more often than not, is directed towards his own personal artistic creations, or sedated by alcohol. Finally, he takes up the confrontation he never had with his father, as a child, but in the end he has to accept, that it did not make a difference and that the real change is the acceptance of loss.

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.
