The Nannies


“The Nannies” is the 2021 Staff Pick Award Winner at Palm Spring ShortFest.

“The Nannies” is a performative documentary with plenty of creative energy driving a deeply personal project. When filmmaker Signe Barvild Stæhr was just five years old, her mother died unexpectedly in the middle of the night. Signe remembers only very little from that time in the late 1980s, and her father doesn’t like to talk about it. In order to fill in the many gaps, she contacts the several nannies who helped out in their household the following years. It turns out that they all remember things in their own way. The stories of the past are conjured up through aesthetically refined reconstructions of life in the suburbs.
