Childrens everyday life at Christiansø

Ida Winther
53 minutes

Christiansø lies among a small cluster of rocky islands in the easternmost reach of the Danish Baltic. The island itself is an old bastion, surrounded still by thick stone walls. Due to its small size, it is a car-free society. There are no cats or dogs here, just hundreds of croaking frogs, thousands of screeching gulls, seasonal colonies of whistling eiders, and the constant buffeting of the Baltic wind.

The film focuses on the everyday lives of children for whom the small island of Christiansø is home. It's done as a filmed fieldwork, from January to September 2011.
