Synopsis

DIRECTOR: Lasse Lau

WITH: Rie Hougaard Landgreen, Vivi Nielsen, Nukaka Coster-Waldau and Greenlandic Artists

The relationship between Greenland and Denmark is full of fantasy and myths. Danish filmmaker and artist Lasse Lau, together with his performers, have created a sensitive film about authenticity and recreation by letting both elements become a part of the work. The colonial history is entrenched not only in Greenland’s infinitely beautiful landscapes, but also in the collective consciousness. But so is a willingness to break with the past and look ahead with a new political self-awareness.
