The festival program showcases an impressive lineup of new Danish titles that address an array of social, political, and cultural issues. CPH:DOX presents a unique opportunity to immerse oneself in Denmark's vibrant filmmaking scene. From a documentary that examines the transition from working life to retirement, to explorations of gender and a documentary that delves on the guilt and punishment of former Ugandan child soldiers, the Danish lineup promises to be both diverse and captivating.
The festival's opening gala screening will feature 'Twice Colonized,' a documentary co-produced with Greenland and Canada. The film tells the powerful story of lawyer and activist Aaju Peter and her relentless fight for recognition and justice for both herself and other indigenous people in a world where colonialism is still not a thing of the past.
Among the many Danish films, Lea Glob's 'Apolonia, Apolonia' will be screened, an existential portrait that already won the Best Film Award at the International Documentary Festival Amsterdam. Additionally, Christoffer Guldbrandsen's long-awaited film 'A Storm Foretold' about Donald Trump's former advisor Roger Stone will also be shown.
