From an unfamiliar Greek port to the quiet streets of Uppsala, Sweden, a brave three-year-old Syrian refugee makes the long journey through Europe with her family to find comfort and a fresh start in a new home. Full of a child’s energy and curiosity, carrying her little “Frozen” backpack, she takes in her surroundings between hundreds of adult legs. For every step she takes, she emanates a longed-for feeling of hope.
Dir. Egil Håskjold Larsen - 70mins - 2017 - Norway - Language: Arabic - Subtitles available in: English, French, Spanish
“The incredible cinematography, immaculate editing, creative sound design and music all melt into a haunting experience. Its rhythm also imitates that of a dangerous sea which is the starting point of a journey mainly focusing on Lean, an unforgettable three year old girl. She embodies both hope and courage in a time when it is most needed.” - CPH:DOX Jury http://ow.ly/7TVs50BH61r
