The upcoming Danish low-budget film The Guity has received a boost after being selected by the Danish Cinema Club.
The Danish Cinema Club has around 200,000 members, who each get vouchers to see selected movies at the cinema for half price. The Danish Cinema Club represents around 10% of total admissions in Denmark.
The Guilty is directed by Gustav Möller and is a real-time drama/thriller about an alarm dispatcher (Jakob Cedergren) who races against time to save a kidnapped woman. The project was first presented at the Gothenburg Film Festival’s Work in Progress session in January.
Other Danish films in the line-up are Terribly Happy by directed Henrik Ruben Genz. The film is about a strong-willed patriarch (Søren Malling) whose family may revolt against him. Erik Clausen‘s Never Again a Tomorrow, in which the director also plays the leading role of a great Danish artist who dies and observes the reactions of his family and friends. Lastly is Ole Bornedal‘s As Long As I Live, which stars Rasmus Bjerg as iconic Danish singer-songwriter John Mogensen, who found success as a member of Four Jacks and also a solo artist.
