To verdener (Niels Arden Oplev, DK, 2008)
Foto: Jens Juncker-Jensen

Sara and her family are proud to belong to Jehova's Witnesses. In the local community they go from door to door and preach on Judgment Day and eternal salvation for Jehova's chosen ones. But when Sara falls in love with Teis, she is confronted with the choice of her life. Teis is not a Witness, but still their love grows through stolen, secret meetings. Sara is torn between her conscience, faith and passion; forced to make a choice between her love and her family that are worlds apart.

Registration of festival participation and awards

The Danish Film Institute registers international festival participation and awards for Danish films, though primarily for films whose festival distribution is handled by the Danish Film Institute, and primarily in connection with festivals prioritised by the Danish Film Institute. Festival participation and awards regarding Danish films that are not handled through the Danish Film Institute's festival distribution will only be registered in connection with "launch" festivals, according to the Danish Film Institute's list of priority festivals. See the list of priority festivals.
