ABOUT THE DANISH CINEMA
Danish Cinema is one of the oldest in the world and stands out for its vanguard. Director Carl Theodor Dreyer is an icon of international Nordic classic cinema and among other generation the productions of the Dogma 95 movement, which launched directors such as Lars Von Trier and Thomas Vinterberg. Even more recently their films are often selected, including for the Oscar in the category “foreign film”, and awarded in major festivals around the world.
Due to the great international prominence that the cinema of Denmark has been obtaining in the last years the Cultural Institute of Denmark, in Rio de Janeiro, created CineKlap. Cine Klap was created with the aim of promoting Danish cinema and promoting exhibitions, lectures and workshops that will allow a cultural exchange between the two countries.
“It is very important for the Cultural Institute and for Denmark that there is a cinema show like this. I believe that projects where the public finds the art of another country with curatorship in Brazil is a true cultural exchange,” says Maibrit Thonsen director of the institution. “The quest for its essence helped make Danish-produced cinema one of the most respected and impactful in the world, a festival-award-winning film and a steady presence at the Oscars – only in the last five years have been three nominations for the best foreign film statuette”, observes Raphael Aguinaga from Cine Joia.
