Sons of Denmark

by Ulaa Salim

 

with Mohammed Ismail Mohammed, Zaki Youssef, Rasmus Bjerg

 

Produced by Daniel Mühlendorph (Hyæne Film)

Sales Agent: New Europe Film Sales

 

One year after a major bomb attack in Copenhagen radicalisation around the country has intensified and ethnic tensions are running high. The next parliamentary election is near, and the extremely nationalist politician leader Martin Nordahl is set for a landslide victory. 19-year old Zakaria gets involved in a radical organisation, where he forms a bond with Ali. The two men cannot agree with the current state of the country, which is turning on its own citizens because of their migration background, and decide to act. However, they are both just tools in the hands of people with power. As the men try to make their mark, their brotherhood will be tested and their actions will have grave consequences on their lives.

The Best of Dorien B.

Produced by Dries Phlypo (A Private View)

Sales Agent: Be for films

 

Dorien has everything to be happy: a successful husband, two adorable children and a booming veterinary practice. One day, everything falls apart. She discovers her mother’s long-running love affair, her husband appears to be very close to a colleague and she has this lump in her breast. She needs someone to talk to but no-one seems to listen. Is this truly the life she dreamt of? Dorien realises it’s time to make some changes.

 

“The Best of Dorien B.” is a comedy-drama about a woman who rediscovers herself amid the chaos.

X&Y

by Anna Odell

 

with Trine Dyrholm, Mikael Persbrandt, Vera Vitali, Shanti Roney, Sofie Gråbøl, Jens Albinus, Thure Lindhardt

 

Produced by Frida Jonason, Mattias Nohrborg (B-Reel Films)

Sales Agent: New Europe Film Sales

 

Swedish director and visual artist, Anna Odell (The Reunion), conducts a social experiment in which she aims to challenge the gender roles that men and women have in the society of today. In a purpose-build warehouse set she confronts herself with the Swedish actor and masculine icon Mikael Persbrandt, and invites seven other top Scandinavian actors to live with them and act as alter egos of herself and Mikael.

 

The group embarks on a game without rules, which leads to real conflicts and funny, absurd and emotional situations since Trine Dyrholm, Jens Albinus, Vera Vitali, Shanti Roney, Sofie Gråbøl and Thure Lindhardt for many weeks will have to “stay in their roles” at all times.
