Victor’s Book – Being a Young Carer
What does it feel like growing up with a parent who sometimes can't handle being just that? And how do you get your everyday life to work as a child when your parent's mental health is like a roller coaster?
This is what the Swedish short film "Victor's Book" is trying to answer. In the film (15 min) we meet young carers of today sharing their thoughts and feelings but we also get to know parents with mental disorders struggling with their parenthood. The documentary parts of the film are accompanied by a fiction story and creative 2D-animations – all together the film combines feelings with facts, understanding and humor with the aim to meet the needs of young carers.
