LAND OF MINE (Under Sandet)
Oscar Nominated for Best Foreign Language Film
In the aftermath of World War II, this gripping drama follows a group of young surrendered German POWs who are ordered by Allied forces to remove 2 million of their own landmines from the coast of Denmark with their bare hands.
As World War Two comes to an end, a group of German POWs, boys rather than men, are captured by the Danish army and forced to engage in a deadly task - to defuse and clear landmines from the Danish coastline. With little or no training, the boys soon discover that the war is far from over. Inspired by real events, Land of Mine exposes the untold story of one tragic moment in postwar history. (Denmark & Germany, 2015, 100 min., Danish & German with English Subtitles, R, DCP | Dir. Martin Zandvliet)
