Anja Hauberg, Denmark, 2012

14 min.DK/DocumentaryChildren's films, Portrait films

Ida and her family are Jehovah's Witnesses. They pray together several times a day, preach each Saturday and in the afternoon Ida will rather play with her sister, than anyone from her school. Ida spends most of her time with her family, she loves them very much and the faith that they are sharing. Therefore it's okay with her that she's not allowed to celebrate her birthday, or anyone else's birthday for that matter, though sometimes it's a little difficult not to sing along in her head, when the others sing birthdays songs in school.
