Heart of light

Jacob Grønlykke, Denmark, 1998

90 min.DK/Feature

A dramatic tale of one man's hunt for self-respect and identity; a kind of Greenland western. Despite his good nature, Rasmus, a Greenlander, is going through a tough period with unemployment and alcohol. A violent family tragedy awakens him and sends him on a perilous odyssey through the vast plains of snow and ice. The time has come for him to make the hunting trip he has been dreaming of for so long. On his journey he encounters mythical figures which serve as an aid in retrieving his Greenlandic identity.

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.
