The Legacy – I, II & III

The Legacy – I, II & III


The Legacy is a very modern family portrait. A description of the ‘68 generation and their children. A narrative about the sharp traces and consequences left by an intense time of upheaval upon modern family life – whether it takes place in a seemingly liberated and progressive artist’s home or in a more traditional and community-oriented, provincial environment.

The Legacy follows four grown-up children of an artist called Veronika. Their free and chaotic childhood has left its marks on them in very different ways. They live scattered to the four winds until Veronika dies and they gather to wind up the estate. Just before she dies, Veronika leaves the estate to her daughter Signe, who was given up for adoption.
