SectionSHORT FILMS – Discovering great South-Eastern European talent

After the world premiere at Venice FF and another prestigious festival in Toronto, this refined short film was selected for a number of international festivals. With great sophistication it deals with the delicate subject of child loss. Dutch Premiere


After a dramatic event, Orlo (7) watches his parents being consumed with grief. He wants his family to be normal again. When an opportunity arises, Orlo takes things into his own hands, but this is more complicated than he had imagined. The director: ‘’When faced with an experience too big and complex for them to understand, children need help. If parents are not equipped to guide them, children can be left with an open wound to bear for decades to come. This film is for my father, who was 7 when his baby-sister died. No one managed to talk to him about it. Sometimes, I get a glimpse of that 7-year-old boy in him. I guess the age we are when our childhood ends stays with us until the end of our lives’’.
