My Desert Island

Running time: 25'43''

Production: DK 2015

In this intimate and experimental film, we meet the Danish-Turkish writer Ayse Dudu Tepe (Dudu) and her friend, filmmaker Lea Hjort Mathiesen. A seemingly harmless conversation between the women paves the way back into the home where Dudu grew up. In a rare mix between cinema and poetry, “My Desert Island” tells the story of a woman having to flee her family and cultural identity in order to build her own.
