Delightful Danes

Delightful Danes 5: Delightful Danes at the Oscars

In the last few decades, Danish short fiction films have been nominated for more Academy Awards than almost any other European country. These two star-studded programmes include films that have paraded down the red carpet in Hollywood in all their glory. The first programme invites you to enchanting and magical worlds, tragicomical impostors at Danish class for immigrants and life, death and karaoke. It’s tears, laughter and heart-stirring emotions, all the way to the stage at the Oscars.
