DIRECTOR: Jesper W. Nielsen - NORWAY

Adapted from Jostein Gaarder’s acclaimed novel, Through a Glass, Darkly is the sensitive, moving story of how an otherworldly presence helps a young girl come to terms with her serious illness. Cecilie, home from the hospital, wants everyone to act normally, but it isn’t so easy for her family. It isn’t easy for Cecilie either, but she has found a way to cope—by thinking back to a family holiday in Spain where she fell in love with Sebastian. One night an odd man enters Cecilie’s room, claiming to be an angel named Ariel. At first Cecilie doesn’t believe him, but when he does things that no human can do, she accepts his claim and asks him to reveal the secrets of heaven. Ariel agrees, but only if she first tells him what it is like to live on Earth.
