Co-produced A House Made of Splinters awarded at GFF and Sundance

Simon Lereng Wilmont’s new documentary A House Made of Splinters continues to travel the international festival circuit and wins The Dragon Award for Best Nordic Documentary at Gothenburg Film Festival and Best Director in the World Cinema Documentary competition at Sundance Film Festival.

A House Made of Splinters is a follow-up to the acclaimed The Distant Barking of Dogs, following the consequences of war in Eastern Ukraine.

In this poignant and deeply intimate documentary three kids temporarily removed from their parents find friendship and flickers of hope inside the worn walls of a remarkable orphanage in Eastern Ukraine, as a group of dedicated social workers create moments of joy and respite from childhoods all but lost.

A House Made of Splinters is a co-production between Monica Hellström/Final Cut (Denmark), Sami Jahnukainen/Donkey Hotel (Finland), Tobias Janson/Story AB (Sweden), Darya Bassel & Vika Khomenko/Moon Man (Ukraine).
