FRA/ SWI | 2021 | dir. Damien Odoul with Théo Kermel, Pierre Meunier, Sonia Gondry

In a remote house in the forest, Théo, a young man with Down’s syndrome, lives in seclusion with his father. The two get along in their daily lives without much talk. Théo loves nature and has a passion for drawing. Every day he spends time training his body, his balance, his reflexes and his inner strength, and dreams of becoming a samurai. Winner of the Grand Prix at the New Horizons Film Festival in Poland, French writer/director Damien Odoul’s film shows us the world from Théo’s perspective. Constantly accompanied by his inner voice, Théo’s thoughts and emotions are brought to life in a dynamic, ever-changing visual language.

The screening on 24 June will be followed by a discussion with Damien Odoul and Théo Kermel.
