Poul Henningsen, Denmark, 1935

55 min.DK/DocumentaryTourist films

The first important Danish documentary film. It was in advance of its time and provoked much discussion, the older generation finding it lacking in 'romance', the younger welcoming it both for its original technique, and for its humour, freshness and warm and human appreciation of the everyday life of the common man.

Voiceover Poul Henningsen

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.
