A Circus Love Story
"The Circus Dynasty" is a love drama set in a circus. Over a whole season, director Anders Riis-Hansen travelled in a caravan with Denmark's Cirkus Arena, plumbing his fascination with the circus world and following the budding romance between the youngest heirs to two of Europe's most illustrious circus dynasties.
"Insight into the Journalistic Process Is Important to Understand Our Democracy"
As the daughter of a journalist and editor-in-chief, Mikala Krogh's childhood was defined by newspapers, debate and a critical attitude towards those in power. To make "The Newsroom – Off the Record", the filmmaker spent the entire year of 2013 as a fly on the wall at the Copenhagen tabloid Ekstra Bladet. The following interview was told to Lasse Jensen.
The Future of (Tabloid) Newspapers
At a time when the newspaper industry is struggling with changing habits of news consumption, Mikala Krogh got access to the Danish tabloid Ekstra Bladet. Documenting the daily work of reporters and editors, "The Newsroom – Off the Record" also suggests that the decline in tabloid readership is about more than competition from new media, says film critic and former newspaper reporter Demetrios Matheou.
A Good Place to Be
In her new film, Phie Ambo goes to bat for sustainable agriculture. "Good Things Await" is about Niels Stokholm, a farmer fighting with the authorities to run his farm – supplier to Copenhagen's acclaimed Noma restaurant – his way, biodynamically.
Building a True Creative Space
Signe Byrge Sørensen has produced both of Joshua Oppenheimer's films bringing to light the human consequences of the Indonesian genocide. Her collaboration with the American-born director has proven long-lasting and fertile.
Meeting the Audience: Interview with Joshua Oppenheimer
"The reception has been far beyond what I could have hoped for." Talking to FILM about the reactions to "The Look of Silence", Joshua Oppenheimer recalls the powerful experience of watching his film for the first time with its main character Adi and reflects on the consequences the film is having for Adi and his family.
Holding a Mirror to Horror
"The Look of Silence" sees Joshua Oppenheimer back in uncharted territory. While "The Act of Killing" took a surreal look at Indonesia's genocide through the imagination of the killers, his follow-up tells the victims' story through a young optician boldly confronting the men who killed his brother – and who are still in power.
The Human Aspect of Violence
"Warriors from the North" is the product of a close collaboration between Somali-Danish journalist Nasib Farah and journalist and documentary filmmaker Søren Steen Jespersen.
We Have to Learn from the Warriors from the North
Søren Steen Jespersen and Nasib Farah's "Warriors from the North" provides a unique window into a world where young Somali Danes go off to fight a holy war and are willing to die for the terrorist organisation al-Shabaab. We need stories like this to understand how things could go so wrong, says the journalist Jakob Sheikh, who writes about radicalisation and terrorism for the Danish newspaper Politiken.
On the Road to Democracy
A unique chemistry emerged between filmmaker Camilla Nielsson and the protagonists of "Democrats", Paul Mangwana and Douglas Mwonzora, former political opponents united by their efforts to write a new constitution for Zimbabwe.
