My Family Portrait
When my grandmother was 26, she had an experience that left deep emotional scars. Finnmark was set on fire, and she and her husband and their three little children had to flee – or face death. For three weeks they were on the run, hiding in a small fishing boat. Taking care of the family was always an important part of my grandmother's life, but today family contact has been broken. This film is my attempt to gather the family once to take one last family portrait – and to find out why things turned out the way they did.
