Fucking Bornholm

by Anna Kazejak Feature Film Competition

On the Danish island of Bornholm, two families spend their traditional short vacation together. The campers park at a prime beach location and pitch tent for the three boys – so far, so good. But an incident with the children upsets the idyll: What begins as an immature quarrel gradually develops into a full-blown fight. Soon the pitfalls of raising children, midlife crises and marital problems are ruthlessly exposed – and the originally relaxing vacation turns into a purifying purgatory. Director Anna Kazejak allows bourgeois family ideals to collide with formal sovereignty in her comedy drama FUCKING BORNHOLM.

About the director(s)

The Polish director and screenplay writer Anna Kazejak studied film theory for several years before attending the National Film School in Lodz. She attracted international attention with her short film YOU ARE THERE (2004), before joining forces as a director with Maciej Migas and Jan Komasa to create the multi award-winning ODE TO JOY (2004). This was followed by the documentary film THE SIDETRACK (2009), and the two feature-length fiction films FLYING PIGS (2010) and THE WORD (2014). FUCKING BORNHOLM, her third feature, world premiered at KVIFF.
