Filmfest 2019

It's Lene's first day back at work after some time off. Friends and acquaintances, regulars and strangers come to her jazz and blues bar. While Lene is waiting for Danish musician Leif, who is scheduled to perform tonight, the guests discuss all kinds of topics, ranging from pop music by elves and invisible cell phones to maggots eating away at corpses. But what if Leif doesn't show up at all? LEIF IN CONCERT is the story of a barkeeper and her guests as well as a cinematic love letter to music and that one bar that everybody knows. It's an evening in our extended living room, where everybody can just be themselves.
