Between Two Worlds / Mellem to verdener

Janus Metz (DK, 2018)

Mellem to verdener (Janus Metz, DK, 2018)

25 years ago, Sommai, a former sex worker from Pattaya, married a Danish man and moved with him to a remote community on the west coast of Denmark. Ever since, she has arranged marriages between lonely Danish fishermen and women from her Thai village back home. With Sommai as matchmaker and cultural broker at the centre of the film, we follow four couples as they fight for dignity and struggle to find a way out of poverty and loneliness. We are there when dreams become reality and when life doesn’t go according to plan, when marriages succeed or fail, when children grow up to reap the benefits or pay the price of their mothers' choices.

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.
