Meeting My Father Kasper Højhat

Lea Glob, Denmark, 2011

28 min.DK/DocumentaryFilm school films

I never met my father. All I knew was, that he once was a handsome man with a red beard and a big ship tattooed on his chest. One day, I was told that he had died. He committed suicide after 14 years in prison. This is the film about my father, a bank robber and magician, and about how I got to know him backwards.
