Short films from the neighboring country compiled by Flensburger Kurzfilmtage.

Hvis Der Var Krig I Norden, animated film, 5', Denmark, 2019, Puk Grasten.

What if Denmark was under extremist rule? What if that regime declared war on the rest of Scandinavia? What if your mother was sick and you had to flee? What if you were living in a tent camp in Egypt? What if your family preferred nationalism to you? So who would you be?

Deepness of the Fry, animated film, 4', Denmark 2019, directed by August Poul Niclasen.

Is a unique life possible in a world where everything has already been said, felt and done? An absurd existential crisis disguised as a collage film.

Barnepigerne Documentary 22', Denmark 2020, Directed by Signe Barvild Staehr.

When I was 5 years old, I lost my mother. She died unexpectedly at night, and when I woke up everything was different. My father seemed to be a changed man. We never talked about what happened that night or the years that followed. Since I don't remember much, I contacted the nannies who stayed with me and my family in the late 80s.
