SPECIAL SCREENING: 15th October (4 PM). Introduction by sound designer and Oscar-winning foley artist Heikki Kossi (Finland).
A House Made of Splinters follows three kids awaiting their fate— will they go back or move on to a new home?— while a group of dedicated social workers create small moments of joy and respite from a childhood almost lost. Filmmaker Simon Lereng Wilmont returns with a follow-up to his acclaimed first feature, The Distant Barking of Dogs, offering a unique look into how the long-term consequences of war on a society already under strain, impacts the most vulnerable. His is a poignant and deeply intimate portrait of a remarkable way station, filled with care, support, and trust for a group of kids who are in desperate need of more.
