Aside the Sea

Sine Skibsholt, Denmark, 2011

29 min.DK/DocumentaryFilm school films

In Jammerbugten, in the far north of Denmark, by the sea, lies the small fishing village Thorupstrand. It is the only place left in Denmark where an otherwise extinct life form still exists. Where everybody knows everybody, and where fishing skills are passed on from father to son. The way it has always been. It is a tough and harsh life. The young fishermen head out to sea, while the older wait on shore, hoping for the big catch. Many myths about the sea are told here, as well as stories about life, and the ancient struggle with nature is always present.

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. Se listen over prioriterede festivaler.
