Helge is sixty. It‘s a time of celebration. A time for the family to gather and smooth over the cracks left by the suicide of Linda, twin sister to Christian. As Helge‘s eldest son, Christian will raise the first toast. Confined within the family house, guests are rocked by the revelations that pierce and destroy the veneer of middle-class respectability. Centre Stage from Aberdeen University presents Festen, David Eldridge’s adaption of the award-winning Dogme 95 film. It brings the dark secrets of a Scottish middle-class family to daylight and shows how quickly and unexpectedly domestic bliss can break up. Ages 14+. Contains sexual content.
