1:1 (ONE TO ONE)

Category: Edition 2006


Friday night on a council estate on the outskirts of Copenhagen. 19-year-old Per, is badly beaten up and taken to hospital in a coma. His mother, Søs, can’t help feeling that she is responsible for Per’s predicament because she has insisted on living in a area most whites abandoned long ago. Now her son is hovering between life and death, but in the papers he is merely one more headline about ghetto violence. Mie, Per’s 16-year-old sister seeks solace from her boyfriend, Shadi, whose parents are from Palestine. But Shadi finds it hard to comfort her, because that same night he has seen his elder brother, who has a previous conviction for assault, washing blood off his clothing in the bathroom at home. Shadi holds his tongue as his doubts grow.

Director’s statement
“When the world as we know it changes, it makes us feel insecure. When we feel insecure we fear we’ll lose what we’ve got. When we fear that, we try to exert control. At best fear is an instinct that enables us to survive. At worst it is a cancer that spreads and mutates into angst. This is a film about fear. I want to tell this story eye to eye. 1 to 1”.
