    Asylbarn (2013)



    In three animated short films, Solén, Jamila and Tefik talk about their lives as refugees at camps in Denmark. They describe the waiting, their friendships, their yearnings, dreams and hopes. They want to be kids instead of asylum kids. We get their take on their situation in a new country. They describe major and minor events from their everyday lives as they see them: what it’s like when mum is ill, having to wait for papers, missing relatives and friends and trying to be accepted by classmates and teachers at school.
