Jeanette Nordahl's 'Wildland' was fortunate to be part of the Berlinale 2020, the last physical festival before the pandemic lockdown. Now, Nordahl's feature debut is finally premiering on the big screen in Denmark. The film's original release date was 12 March, the exact same day cinemas and the rest of public activity in the country came to a halt.
Opening on 28 May, 'Wildland' will be the first Danish film to screen as theatres in Denmark, like in many countries, are slowly getting back in business, albeit with restrictions.
Looking ahead at major international cinema events, Nordahl's modern mafia drama will also be part of Karlovy Vary Film Festival's showcase KVIFF AT YOUR CINEMA as one of 16 films to screen at 96 theatres across the Czech Republic from 3 to 11 July.
'Wildland' is Jeanette Nordahl's feature debut, written by Ingeborg Topsøe. The film, which enjoyed a warm reception in the Berlin Film Festival's Panorama section, is a contemporary crime drama offering a radical meditation on family, loyalty and the seductive cycle of violence and corruption.
Sidse Babett Knudsen plays alongside newcomer Sandra Guldberg Kampp, with a cast also including Joachim Fjelstrup, Elliott Crosset Hove and Besir Zeciri in prominent roles.
'Wildland' is produced by Eva Jakobsen, Katrin Pors and Mikkel Jersin for Snowglobe. The film is backed by the Danish Film Institute, DR and the FilmFyn regional fund. Paris-based Bac Films is handling international sales.
Next Danish films in line at local cinema theatres are Lone Scherfig's 'The Kindness of Strangers', the animation film 'Blokhavn', Jesper W. Nielsen's 'The Exception' and Christina Rosendahl's 'The Good Traitor'.
Jeanette Nordahl, 2020
Following the tragic death of her mother, Ida falls into the care of her estranged aunt Bodil and Bodil’s three grown sons. Ida initially finds comfort in their home, which is filled with physical tenderness and a strong sense of unity. But the darker reality of her family's criminal way of life and toxic dynamics slowly pushes her to accept violence, addiction and intimidation as normal.
