Inspired by real events, Land of Mine exposes the untold story of a moment in Denmark’s history. Directed by Martin Zandvliet (Denmark, 2015). 101 min. In Danish and German with English subtitles.

Set in May, 1945, only a few days after the end of the war, this film tells the story of a group of German prisoners of war who were brought to Denmark and forced to disarm the two million land mines that had been scattered along the West Coast by the German occupying forces. In charge of the enfeebled young men performing the dangerous task is Sergeant Carl Leopold Rasmussen who, like so many of his fellow Danes, has a deep hatred for the Germans after having suffered five years of hardships during the occupation. He lets his rage rain down on the prisoners, until one day a tragic incident makes him change his view of the enemy— even if it may be too late.

Series pass $45 ($30 ASF Members)
