Premio NEXT & Menzione Speciale Politiken:Dox / CPH:DOX, Copenhagen
The story of a family and of all the ways in which we flee, instead of talking about that which hurts. 25 years after the tragic death of his brother, the director Christians Einshøj's family is falling apart. But when his overworked CEO dad is unexpectedly let off and decides to sell the family home, Christian goes back home in a final desperate attempt to recover what is lost. Armed with 30 years of home-video, 75.000 family photos and three tightly fit superhero costumes, he ventures into landscapes of long-lost time, in an attempt to confront the hidden wounds of the past.
Christian Einshøj (Denmark, 1985) attended the European Film College in Ebeltoft. He made his directorial debut with the short documentary film "How I Live, as You Wanted to Know" (2014). His second short film "Haunted" (2018) won the best international short film award at the Toronto HotDocs.
