2nd Danish Film Festival

2nd Danish Film Festival

Sept. 29 to Oct. 2, Shang Cineplex, Premier Theater, Shangri-La Plaza, Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong

In celebration of 70 Years of Diplomatic Relations between Denmark and the Philippines, The Embassy highlights its second edition of the #DanishFilmFest.

Denmark will once again be showcasing some finely curated films with themes ranging from child superheroes (Antboy: Revenge of the Fury) to conspiracy theories (The Idealist) to your typical family style conflicts (Silent Heart).

The Danish Embassy, on its third year since reopening, is driven to encourage the public to know more about Danish culture, traditions, interests, and basic way of living.

One of the films of note during the festival is Rosita, where local actress Mercedes Cabral plays the role of a young Filipina who is arranged to meet a lonely middle-aged widower (Jens Albinus) in a small fishing town in Denmark.

It gets interesting when Rosita becomes more acquainted with the son Johannes (Mikkel Boe Følsgaard) while the inter-relationships turn out to be more complex than usual.

Other films to look out for are The Keeper of the Lost Causes (Nikolaj Lie Kaas), Sex Drugs and Taxation (Pilou Asbæk), The Hour of the Lynx (Sofie Gråbøl), Fear Me Not (Ulrich Thomsen), With Your Permission (Lars Brygmann), The Candidate (Nikolaj Lie Kaas), and Karla’s World (Elena Arndt-Jensen).

The 2nd Danish Film Festival will be screening 11 carefully selected films during the period, all for free.
