Documentary film for children
23 mins – for all audience – 2014
Marie is a cheerful 7-year-old girl, who will begin school in the autumn. Her mother comes from Namibia and her father from Cameroon. Marie has a 9-year-old sister Elise and a 3-year-old brother Ben. They have all been born in Finland. She has an older brother Donald in Namibia, whom she has never met. The family hopes to travel to Africa within six months. The continent seems distant and strange compared to their home Finland. The family members speak English to one another, but Marie speaks Finnish already fluently. Both cultures are present in everyday life and have become a natural part of life for the girl.
Spoken language Finnish. With English & Swedish subtitles.
