Sven & visdommen

Marie Louise Lefèvre, Denmark, 2011

58 min.DK/DocumentaryPortrait films

In the middle of Bredgades heavy traffic lies a small Bookstore with an air of Timelessness about it. Here Sven Damsholt takes care of his Private Oasis for Searching Souls. Despite his 95 years, he still goes to the store every day and he still translates spiritual and religious writings. Sven's own spiritual quest has been passionate. His Curiosity has sometimes led him far and wide, which has threatened to destroy his Marriage to Swedish Martha and the Family Life with their 6 Children. Sven wants to come to terms with his life choices - unpretentious and free of Dogma - and he talks about the insights a long life lived among the wisdom of books has brought him.

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.
