International Feature Competition


  • Description
  • With uncommon candor and openness, Trygve Allister Diesen's raw, sublime second feature examines an unusual father/daughter relationship.

    At the center of HOLD MY HEART is estranged father Harald, who decides to do the unthinkable-kidnap his own daughter. What follows is an often-moving journey down unexpected roads and exits, towards a destination as mysterious as Harald's own heart.

    In the end, Diesen's daring HOLD MY HEART manages to find the precise point where terror and love meet.
