Peter von Scholten

Palle Kjærulff-Schmidt, Denmark, 1987

113 min.DK/Feature

Historical epic based on early strife and triumph in the life of Peter von Scholten, a 19th century far-sighted, racially enlightened and privately high-living governor of the (then) Danish Virgin Islands. After many disputes with authorities in Copenhagen and with local officials and plantation owners, von Scholten swuelched a looming black uprising by arbitrarily abolishing slavery in 1848.

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.
