Denmark / 2023 / 89'
Two decades after the tragic death of his brother, the director Christians Einshøj’s family is falling apart. 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 25-year old tragedy, and the hidden wounds left in its wake. It’s a story of fathers and sons, of vast collections of stamps and amateur videography, of long-distance business-class flights and all the other ways in which we flee, instead of talking about that which hurts – and of the redemption that can follow when the silence is breached and they maybe finally make it to the other side of the mountains.
