Bror

Denmark | 2019 | fiction | 22 min. Short film competition

This unpretentious short film debut of Sara Hjort Ditlevsen about complex family relations endears the viewer with its honesty and simplicity. Focused on youth, it is boldly looking into the future. Katrine has not seen her brother Bror since early childhood. Nervous, she goes to their first meeting with many expectations as well as fears. Will the siblings be able to reconstruct the broken bond? Will they manage to overcome the barriers which were raised not only because of their separation, different experiences or being brought up in different environments?
