Daddy + I Am An Other

Show trailer
Two Danish films. An American anthropologist has a child with his Danish wife and sees himself in a new light. And two young women share a passion for cosplay and each other.

The short film ‘I am an Other’ follows Percy and Elija, who live together in a Copenhagen suburb and share a passion for cosplay. The two young women also share the entire universe that they have built with the performative Japanese role-playing culture, where they can live out other sides of themselves. ‘Daddy’ is about Brendan, an American anthropologist who has ended up in Denmark as a father of a small child. With a non-Danish view of our small country, but with a self-irony that he must have picked up here, his own life becomes the subject of his professional and often funny perspective of being a father.

Daddy

Lars Leonhardt / Denmark, United States / 2020 / 54 min / WORLD PREMIERE

Brendan was an anthropologist and travelled around the world to study foreign cultures and people. Right until he met the love of his life in Denmark and became the father of their child. With a non-Danish view of our small country, but with a self-irony that he must have picked up here, his own life becomes the subject of his professional and often funny perspective of being a father. It's a full-time job, since finding work is not so easy when you don't speak Danish. All vanity has long been disposed of, and 'Daddy' is an honest and unsentimental film with a warm heart.

I Am An Other

Victoria Salomonsen / Denmark / 2020 / 16 min / WORLD PREMIERE

Percy and Elija are in a relationship, they live together in a suburb of Copenhagen and don't only share a passion for cosplay. They also share the entire universe that they have built together in the performative Japaneses role-playing universe, where they can live out other sides of themselves. We experience the two young people 'in character' and in full makeup, but also when they share pillows with each other in their intimate and private 'backstage' home in their apartment. Victoria Salomonsen's 'Jeg er en anden' is a stylish and psychologically astute film about being young in a performative age, where you have the freedom to be yourself and someone else – if only you have the courage too.
