Press release11.07.2004At the closing ceremony of the 39th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (2-10 July 2004), in the Czech Republic, Paprika Steen's feature film debut "Aftermath" was honoured with the award for Best Actress (Karen-Lise Mynster). "Aftermath", about a couple struggling in separate ways to overcome a loss, is produced by Thomas Heinesen for Nordisk Film Production. Kim Fupz Aakeson wrote the screenplay, and Erik Zappon was director of photography. The film was released in Danish cinemas in March. Karlovy Vary's eight day event attracted thousands of young people and the 209 screenings were shown to packed audiences, resulting in some 90,000 admissions in the first five days. Karlovy Vary International Film Festival belongs to the same category of festivals as those in Cannes, Berlin and Venice. It is therefore anticipated that "Aftermath" will join other Danish films that have an enduring festival life.
