Tthis coming Wednesday (5th) sees the return of the mighty CPH:DOX festival to our city’s cinemas with a plethora of challenging, controversial and experimental documentary goodness. Many of these international films are unlikely to be distributed theatrically in Denmark, so now may be your only chance to see them. Tickets are in high demand so book early.
Kicking off the opening night is 1989, a historical documentary by Anders Østergaard (Burma VJ, Tintin et moi), which through interviews and reconstruction details the events leading up to the thawing of the Cold War. The film revolves around the tragic shooting of a young Berlin couple at the east-west border that ultimately contributed to the fall of the wall.
