Diagnose: Poet

Håkan Petterson is not an average poet. He was born with cerebral palsy and lacks the ability to eat, move or speak without assistance. Despite this he lives a wild and poetic life. His unique way with words is expressed through sparse and beautiful poetry. Together with his friend and assistant Jonas, Håkan lives life to the fullest, as a poet. HEAR MY WORDS STRAIGHT, HARD is an interesting and unusual documentary. Images and atmosphere is as singularly poetic as the mind of its main character.

 

Meet director Gunnar Hall Jensen and Håkan Petterson at all screenings during the festival.
