Sanctuary (Faro)

On the run from the police, a father escapes with his daughter into a dream.

As the two fugitives abandon civilisation and escape into the wilderness, their distant relationship begins to blossom and the breathtaking natural landscape joins them centre stage to mesmerising effect. Investing their performances with a poignant, fragile humanity, Clara Christiansson and Jakob Cedergren are outstanding; creating powerful emotional undercurrents that rage beneath director Fredrik Edfeldt's reflective world of beautiful, almost ethereal stillness.
