Wild Bird

Jacob Bitsch, Denmark, 2012

26 min.DK/Short fictionChildren's films

Karla has tamed the bird Krabat and now she wants to show it to Janus. Karla is in love with Janus, but when he rejects the bird as disgusting, she is hurt and reacts violently. Not on Janus, but on her younger brother Mikkel, who needs a trip to the hospital after his sister has taken revenge. A dramatic but also subtle story of the 'forbidden' feelings of a tween-girl.
