We Keep Them in Our Hearts
In this series we meet children of different ages who have lost a close family member. They share their experiences with us.
Seven children who have lost a parent or a sibling talk about their experiences. What thoughts do they have about death and how do they deal with the loss? A documentary series with 5 episodes of approximately 8-12 minutes each. The films will mix documentary, animation and family pictures. We meet children with different experiences, backgrounds and age, and their stories give us a nuanced and rich insight on how children experience grief and loss.
