‘A teenager like any other, Andri spends his time playing sports, learning to play the keyboard and hanging out with his friends. The exterior appearance is only that however, an appearance. His smile is forced, his laughter is rigid. He’s playing a role, a role passed on to him by society. As Andri’s desire for who he truly wants to be increases, the pressure builds…’

Written by director Rúnar Thor, HANN is a story of adolescence and the, perhaps unintended, pressures from society to stay within the confines of normality. A powerful story inspired by Rúnar’s own experiences with acceptance and the long journey it may sometimes take for us to come to terms with who we are.
