We shall overcome

Niels Arden Oplev, Denmark, 2006

110 min.DK/Feature

13-year-old Frits has fallen out of favour with the headmaster of his provincial school. The year is 1969. The world is changing rapidly and corporal punishment has been banned. The tyrannical headmaster, however, hasn''t bothered to notice. Frits spends his summer holidays watching the family''s first television, and is influenced by the winds of change. Martin Luther King''s speeches and dreams of a better life have armoured Frits with courage and the desire for rebellion. When the headmaster steps over the line during punishing Frits, the boy takes up battle against the authorities. The story is based on actual events.
