The Legacy I – II -III
The series is a 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 and handball-minded environment. The Legacy plays out at the legendary Grønnegaard manor in southern Funen, where the internationally renowned artist Veronika Grønnegaard has lived an eccentric and colorful life since the wild sixties.
The series follows Veronika’s four grown-up children whose free and chaotic childhood at Grønnegaard has left its marks on them in very different ways. They live scattered to the four winds until Veronika dies and they gather to pack up the estate. Just before she dies, Veronika leaves the manor to her daughter Signe, who was given up for adoption.
