We present new projects from two of Denmark’s best producers; Signe Byrge (behind Oscar nominated ‘The Act of Killing’) and Sigrid Dyekjær (behind ‘Something Better to Come’ and ‘Ai Weiwei – The Fake Case’). Furthermore, we present new projects from other prominent filmmakers such as Jehane Noujaim, Peter Mettler, Lucy Walker og Leonard Retel Helmrich, among top names from the international art scene such as Yael Bartana and the artist couple Verena Paravel & Lucien Castaing-Taylor.
