The new Nordic film Denmark has been selected to screen at the Berlinale Generation.
The film is about 22-year-old Norge, who lives as a carefree bachelor in Denmark. However, everything comes to a halt when 16-year-old Josephine turns up and tells him she is pregnant. Suddenly they have to talk about children and the possibility of an abortion.
Director Kasper Rune Larsen has just graduated from the Super8 Film School in Aarhus, for which Denmark was his graduation project. The actors in the film improvise the scenes.
The aim of the film is to show how young, immature individuals have to grow-up and try to control their dreams.
Denmark stars Frederikke Dahl Hansen, Jonas Lindegaard Jackobsen, Jacob Skyggebjerg and Jens ”JK” K. It premiered at CPH:PIX in 2017. Next up, it will show at the Nordic Film Market with hopes of further distribution.
