Ludo

Katrin Ottarsdóttir, Faeroe Islands, 2014

71 min.FeatureDrama

A psychologial drama about an 11-year-old girl caught between her mother's dark, depressive mind and her father's wellmeaning passiveness. At a first glance it seems like an ordinary, happy family - mum and dad and their 11-year-old daughter living in a beautiful house in beautiful surroundings in a village in the Faroe Islands - but soon we realize that something dark and sinister lies lurking behind the facade waiting to explode.

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.
