Danish Embassy joins Europe On Screen in Jakarta

This year’s Europe on Screen film festival will be held from Nov 25 – Dec 1, in the Indonesian capital. Denmark is represented with 2 films, a drama thriller “In a Better World” and award-winning documentary “Into Eternity.”

“In a Better World” (“Hævnen”)

Claus moves to Denmark following his wife’s death.  Anton, recently separated from his wife, commutes to work at an African refugee camp.  As each family deals with conflict and grief, their sons form an extraordinary and dangerous friendship with potentially tragic consequences.  Ultimately, all must choose between forgiveness and revenge.  Oscar nominee and Sundance winner Susanne Bier (“After the Wedding”,
“Brothers”, “Things We Lost In The Fire”) masterfully uncovers the fragility of everyday life and the chaos lurking beneath.
