'DEATH OF A CHILD' TO PREMIERE AT GOTHENBURG IFF / by Mauricio Gonzalez-Aranda

We are proud to announce that Frida and Lasse Barkfors' new documentary film DEATH OF A CHILD will premiere at Gothenburg International Film Festival, where it will be one of 8 films competing for the Dragon Award for Best Nordic Documentary.

Just as in the directors' previous film PERVERT PARK, the film deals with an uncomfortable aspect of human existence: this time an exploration of how to live with the unbearable - when the worst has happened and the one to blame is yourself.

DEATH OF A CHILD is an exploration of the lives of parents who have caused their own children’s deaths. The film encompasses many different situations in life where tragedy hits and where someone is at fault, because of mistakes, accidents, neglect or mental illness. There is however something with what these parents have done that seem to trigger a specific social rage and condemnation. Because what kind of parent forgets a baby in a car?
