Report
This dazzling visual yearbook transports the viewer to a pastoral Danish boarding school where 120 teenagers quickly go from total strangers to chosen family. The students find friendship, romantic love, heartbreak and most importantly, kindness for themselves in their mistakes and first-time experiences. Living on their own, without parents or the comforts of home, they learn intensively and develop self-esteem, confidence and coping mechanisms as a group. Together, they foster the ability to be completely and unselfconsciously themselves in the company of others, which creates a climate of acceptance and self-love so strong that, when the COVID-19 pandemic sends everyone home early, the kids can rely on it remotely.
