Film Synopsis: At Home in the World

Director: Andreas Koefoed | Countries of production: Denmark | Year: 2015 | Length: 58 min
Language: Danish with English subtitles | Age: 12+ years

Shot over the course of a year in a Danish school run by the Red Cross, At Home in the World offers a moving glimpse into the lives of five children struggling to learn Danish while adjusting to life in new surroundings.

As they await the outcome of their family’s asylum claims, some of the children thrive and build friendships despite their traumatic pasts; others have difficulty containing their fears and sense of alienation. With astonishing restraint, the film captures its young protagonists’ extraordinary resilience and fragility – while quietly paying tribute to their Danish teachers’ remarkable humanity.
