FINAL DAY: guide for the day

Today is The United Nation’s International Day of the Girl Child and we have gathered them – the fierce girls – in a string of films from todays program. So, welcome to the last day of the festival. We still have several news and highlight up our sleeve, ready for you.

 

GIRLPOWER: Moonie, Katie, Shula, Barbara, Josefine og Enn

We celebrate The United Nation’s International Day of the Girl Child with a long line of powerful, fierce and wonderful girls. From the 6-year old Moonie who holds the lead in our closing film ‘The Florida Project’, to the 9-year old Shula who gets stamped as a witch in the moving film ‘I Am Not a Witch’, to the teenager Barbara who fights both real and imaginative giants in Anders Walter’s ‘I Kill Giants’. The programme also entails the shooting stars Frederikke Dahl Hansen from the PIX-hit ’Denmark’, Elle Fanning in ’How to Talk to Girls at Parties’ and Olivia Cook who delivers a pure ‘Breaking the Waves’-performance in ‘Katie Says Goodbye’. So do we, but not until all of these wonderful films have been screened one last time.

HORROR: Killing Ground

Some people just never learn… Ian and Samantha are on a romantic get-away in Australia’s outback, however the weekend quickly transforms into a bloody cat-catches-mouse game. Watch Damian Powers horrifying and dreading debut feature at 21.30 in Palads. The film is introduced by Nadia Parbo from ‘Blodig Weekend’.

DANISH: Denmark

Kasper Rune Larsen’s charming province portrait keeps on exciting the Danish critics. The Magazine Ekko for instance sprinkled five stars upon ‘Denmark’ and described the film as ‘[…] extremely authentic’.

Chill out to a slacker-movie about love and cold beers in Cinemateket at 16.45. Read more HERE.

 

DANISH: Weak days

It is not easy going on a football trip when you are in a wheelchair. Even less when your traveling partner is a big-mouthed nerd and your helper is busy hooking up with girls. Director Mads Rosenkrantz Grage swings by the screening of his football-crazed roadmovie for a Q&A after the film.

The film screens in Gloria at 19.00. Read more HERE.
