How I See Her
48' / 2001
Karine de Villers
This documentary film draws, with a lot of love and tenderness, the portrait of a young Danish woman in the 1960-70s. Her name was Anne-Marie Sikker Hansen. She accidentally died when her daughter, the film director, was fourteen years old.
She left her two daughters behind, her diary, some letters, some of her paintings, some film footage and her life experience which is also that of a whole generation of young adults searching for their own identity.
Images from May 68 in Copenhagen, others from daily life in a community in those days... Everything is there : the rupture with the traditional family, women's emancipation, the separation, the fulfilment... but what about the children?
This documentary accounts for a time (the 1960-70’s) which seems to be now so far away from us.
