Edge of darkness

Jens Loftager, Denmark, 1991

18 min.DK/Documentary

In the form of a picture poem the film describes how electricity has overcome the forces of darkness. Rather than giving facts about electricity and light the film takes a poetic and philosophical view on the subject and its significance for our lives and consciousness. Quotations from Bønnelycke, Strindberg and Hans Christian Andersen on light and technology are used as the commentary of the film.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste. Se listen over prioriterede festivaler.
