A fisherman from Hanstholm

Jon Bang Carlsen, Denmark, 1977

64 min.DK/Documentary

Jon Bang Carlsen's film is a rather special blend of fiction and documentary film. It started out as a documentary reportage about marine pollution, but developed into a poetic description of the life of a fisherman's family and the risks and expenses involved. It isn't strictly a drama-documentary in the usual sense, but the viewpoint does alternate between fact and fiction.

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.
