As in Heaven
OT: Du som er i Himlen
Tea Lindeburg // Denmark, 2021
Fiction Feature // FF2021
A night that changes everything: the adaptation of the Danish novel »A Night of Death« by Marie Bregendahl is a densely atmospheric drama. The late 19th century. 14-year old Lise lives with her family on a farm. She is the eldest child and the first in her family to go to school. The girl is full of confidence about her future life. When her heavily pregnant mother goes into labour, it’s soon clear that something is wrong. Night falls and the complications show no sign of easing. Lise senses that she started this day a child, but will end it a woman, the woman of the household.
