MEN & CHICKEN

DIRECTOR: Anders Thomas Jensen - DENMARK

“The title might hint at where this brilliant new black comedy from the outrageous mind of Anders Thomas Jensen is going to head, but you won’t have seen anything like it before. Starring Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal) and breaking box office records on its release in Denmark, Men & Chicken is about two hapless man-fail brothers who head to a dilapidated mansion on a remote island to meet their biological father – and their three seriously eccentric siblings. . .A riotously transgressive satire on family and eugenics that doubles as a surprisingly thoughtful meditation on what makes us human.”—Toronto International Film Festival. (104 mins.)

A WAR

DIRECTOR: Tobias Lindholm - DENMARK

Examining the moral complexities of split–second decision-making, Lindholm’s film follows Danish commander Claus Pedersen as he does his best to keep his troops safe and morale high on their deployment in Afghanistan. During a routine mission, the soldiers come under heavy fire, and Pederson must make an impossible decision to save his men, one that will bring grave consequences. “Retaining the structural simplicity and procedural meticulousness of Lindholm’s superb thriller A Hijacking [PIFF 36], A War doesn’t seek to break new ground in the ongoing cinematic investigation of the Afghanistan conflict; rather, it scrutinizes the ground on which it stands...

WHAT WE BECOME

DIRECTOR: Bo Mikkelsen - DENMARK

Idyllic suburban life is shattered when news spreads of a viral infection at a neighboring rest home. Soon enough, the military rolls in, placing the entire town under quarantine. As the virus spreads, the strictures of quiet family life begin to break down under the pressures of impending danger. Mikkelsen’s debut is a tense and clever take on the zombie genre and far more compelling than any season of The Walking Dead. “It’s the kind of noirish horror that is rapidly becoming extinct.” —Peter Martin, Twitch Film. (85 mins.)
