Citizens of the future

Theodor Christensen, Denmark, 1946

38 min.DK/Documentary

A law was passed in 1942 by which a new type of school was established with the aim of giving untrained youths at the age of 15-18 years a chance of getting a certain training and skill at some profession as well as some cultural and social enlightenment. The film describes life at such schools and shows both manual training and the teaching of sociology and history. The background of the founding of the schools is the occupation with the black-out and with the contrast between Danes and Germans.

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.
