Phoenix + Q&A with director & star

"An extremely accomplished and memorable first feature." Sight & Sound

One of the most assured debut films of recent years, Camilla Strøm Henriksen’s heartbreaking coming of age story shows deep sensitivity for all its characters caught in a downward spiral.

Jill – despite her fourteen years – is the de facto parent in her family, caring for her mother in the depths of mental illness and her brother Bo.

Her estranged father’s return proves to be a false dawn, and the two are left more isolated than ever. An intimate story of survival that invests deeply in its characters’ inner life.
