To the Moon and Back

To the Moon and Back / Wolkenzusje

film-roll Netherlands / Color / 16' / 2019 9+

A tender portrait of Kess, who’s about to start high school but isn’t sure how much to tell her new classmates about her sister Bo, who died when Kess was almost five. A touching short film about grief and identity. While Kess shares her thoughts and talks about Bo, animated sequences reflect her imagination. As Kess doesn’t want her new classmates to pity her, she wonders how much she wants to share with them, hoping to be seen as independent from her sister, and being able to create her own story.
