At Home in the World

In Denmark, there is a school for refugee children from all over the world. Here they are taught while they wait for their cases to be treated. Most children have arrived with their parents, a few of them without. Many have experienced war or violence at close range and live with traumas. All of them lost their home. The film follows a class for a year and creates an intimate portrait of a group of children as they try to adapt, learn a new language, make new friends and create a new home in the world.

The film is the director’s eighth title since 2008 to be selected for IDFA, following among others The Arms Drop (2014), The Ghost of Piramida (2012) and Ballroom Dancer (directed with Christian Bonke, 2011), Koefoed’s first feature-length documentary. At Home in the World premiered at CPH:DOX.
