Description

Set on a West Jutland farmstead in the late nineteenth century, this compelling period drama rings true as a portrait of young female consciousness, kaleidoscopic and chaotic. The protagonist, 14-year-old Lise, the eldest of eight siblings, will soon become the first in her family to go away to school. But then a dramatic turn of events puts her future in doubt. The prize-winning film marks the feature debut of Tea Lindeburg and is based on a Danish literary classic, “En Dødsnat” (“A Night of Death”), a 1912 novel by Marie Bregendahl. Lindeburg brings her own understanding of how people lived in rural Denmark in the 1800s to her screenplay. She says, “They believed in signs. And in visions. And in destiny and God. I felt it important to include that whole layer.” Winner, Nordic Dragon, Gothenburg; Best Director, Best Actress, San Sebastian.
