LAND OF MINE
(R) 100min
[in Danish with subtitles]
Apr 11 - 13, 6:00 & 8:15
Afraid of an Allied invasion that ultimately never happened, Hitler had millions of landmines planted along the shores of Denmark’s west coast. At the end of the war, young German prisoners of war, mostly teens who were desperately conscripted when the end was near, were forced to locate and diffuse the bombs manually, first victims of Hitler and then of their Danish captors. In this harrowing, intelligent and compelling fact-based drama which was one of this year’s Oscar nominees and the debut film of writer/director Martin Zandvliet, the tension between revenge and forgiveness, especially within a Danish sergeant in charge of one group, gives this film its power.
