The Mystery Christina
Over the course of 24 years, documentarian Pål Winsents has followed his niece Christina in her attempt to navigate her way through life with the rare genetic diagnosis Kleefstra syndrome. The result is a down to earth, empathic and earnest portrayal of a unique individual’s experience of reality, which provides a compassionate perspective on the challenges people with intellectual disabilities meet in their day to day lives, in school and at work.
