    The Kid and the Clown / With Fidel Whatever Happens

    Laps ja kloun / Mis ka ei juhtu, ikka Fideliga |

    THE KID AND THE CLOWN
    Dir: Ida Grøn
    Denmark 2011, 53'
    In Danish with Estonian and English subtitles

    Angus works two days a week in the children's oncology department of Skejby Sygehus, one of the largest academic hospitals in Denmark. He is neither a nurse nor a doctor, but a clown. He tries to get the children laughing, immersed as they are in the world of injections, drips and chemo treatments. One of these children is six-year-old Tobias. While Tobias struggles with his cancer, Angus battles against the fear and despair that strikes many children and their parents over the course of the intensive treatments. Angus is convinced that humour increases the chance of the treatment's success, but he also acknowledges that these young patients are absolutely alone in their confrontation with their life-threatening disease. For Tobias, in any case, Angus's presence seems to be very meaningful, and the frienship that grows between them helps Tobias to recover.
