Ulla Søe, Denmark, 2018

40 min.Series (documentary)Youth films

The confirmation time is a good opportunity to stop, look back and reflect on who you are.
All confirmation candidates have stories to tell. The stories describe who the youngsters are and memories of the already-lived life help create their identity.
Each young confirmation candidate is interviewed in a 'memory space' surrounded by photos from their entire lives. From this room thoughts and memories of life flow from childhood to the age of 14, and blends with scenes from their confirmation period.
The series shows that the confirmation create the same importance and same big feelings, no matter how and where the confirmation is held.
