The Forbidden Door

United Kingdom, 2017, 4 min
The eight-year-old Marie lives with her father Boudewijn in a small house at the edge of the city. Their world is full of play and imagination, and Boudwijn teaches her to dream. However, Marie has become aware of an unpredictability in her father. Because of his addiction, the warm, dreamy man of the day can suddenly turn into a pair of empty eyes that don’t seem to see her. A man that is not her father. As Marie tries to fight this feeling of unsafety, the two seem to spiral out of control. A story about the strength of a child fighting for the unconditional love of her father.
