A humorous portrait of the challenges of being parents to school-aged children, Fathers & Mothers features an all-star Danish ensemble cast, including Jacob Lohmann (Shorta), Katrine Greis-Rosenthal (A Taste of Hunger SCA22), Nikolaj Lie Kaas (Riders of Justice), Amanda Collin (The Exception SCA21), Martin Greis-Rosenthal (Another Round) and Line Kruse (Cry Wolf). 

Married couple Piv and Ulrik must fight for a place in the parental group in their daughter’s new class at school. They encounter hierarchy, rivalry, dominating personalities and hidden agendas that tend to forget the children and bring out the worst in their parents. When they join the famous and highly popular annual school camping trip, they strive to solidify their place in the parent group but face many obstacles. The question remains – how far are you willing to go for your child? 

Directed by Paprika Steen (That Time of Year SCA19), Fathers & Mothers is a sharp and dynamic comedy you will not want to miss.

Excellent, humorous and lively film about the forced communities that most of us come to know in our lifetime.
