Prince Piwi

Flemming Quist Møller, Denmark, 1974

93 min.DK/FeatureChildren's films, Animation

Animation and live action alternate in the telling of Prince Piwi's journey from his own Animationland, where everybody is so unhappy that tears have become a major export commodity, to Humanland, from where he hopes to bring back what he supposes to be that land's major commodity: Happiness. Happiness proves pretty elusive, and Piwi gets into the clutches of ad-men, con-men and secret agents instead.

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.
