The experiment

Louise Friedberg, Denmark, 2010

90 min.DK/Feature

In 1952, Danish government officials select 16 Greenlandic children to participate in an experiment. They are removed from their families and accommodated in a children's home in Nuuk. Here, the headmistress is put in charge of turning them into good, Danish citizens in a long-term effort to bring Greenland out of its current state of destitution. This becomes an uphill battle.

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.
