Category: short
Director: Anna Roller

Length: 29'
Production Status: completed


Fourteen-year-old Leah lives in an isolated cabin with her ten-year-old brother Theo and their grandmother. Leah is going through a difficult period in her adolescence: though still firmly rooted in the world of children, she is slowly taking on the worries of an adult. A sad event that unexpectedly affects their lives marks the definitive end of one period in Leah's life. She now finds herself responsible for her younger brother, but she carries out the task with the ease of a child. In the sensitively shot The Last Children of Paradise, the landscape surrounding the characters becomes a natural backdrop for a story about losing a sense of security that had felt like paradise.
