The Radio People

Dorthe Høeg Brask, Denmark, 2000

28 min.DK/Documentary

Inger, Bendt, and Rona have never met in the flesh. Yet they feel they know one another. Because every day they get up and tune in to the same local radiostation. They know each other's voices and keep abreast with each other's everyday lives. Their ups and downs, failing health, family disappointments. A non-committal, unique fellowship they cultivate with great loyalty. A film about growing old and being alone. A snapshot of a Denmark we seldom encounter.

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.
