Me and my family

Anja Hauberg, Denmark, 2012

DK/DocumentaryChildren''s films

"My family and I" is a series of portraits of five to seven year old kids, spread across today''s Denmark. Each portrait tells a story about its main character and how he or she is experiencing and managing the world and everyday life with their parents. The main characters of the films are all children who grow up in families, which in one way or another have a life that differs from what we normally see.This doesn''t necessarily mean that none of them are a part of a nuclear family with a father, a mother, siblings, a home and garden. But something in the setting of the children''s life stands out in a way that affects their view of themselves and their conditions. How will Frida feel when her father, who is a soldier, soon will be send off to war - again? For Jonas whose parents are divorced, which means he has two homes. For Victor, whose mother is blind or for Josephine who has two fathers, but no mother?
