EVENT DETAILS

LAND OF MINE

Few films detail the immediate aftermath of conflict and occupation from the Second World War. Land of Mine, an Academy Award nominee for Best Foreign Language Film, exposes the previously hidden story of Denmark’s darkest hour. In the days following the surrender of Nazi Germany in May 1945, German POWs held in Denmark were put to work by the Allied Forces. With minimal or no training in defusing explosives, they were sent to remove in excess of two million of their own landmines from the Danish west coast. During this process, more than half of them were killed or severely wounded. Writer/director Martin Zandvliet sheds light on this historical tragedy as the entry point to a story that involves love, hate, revenge and reconciliation. (Fully subtitled)
