Winner of the European Cinematographer and European Costume Designer at the EFAs 2016.
The legacy of war not only lies in the loss experienced by multitudes, but in the physical scars that forever change the landscape upon which nations fought. 'Land of Mine' is a moving reminder of the cost of conflict and an elegy to those who suffered.
As World War II comes to an end, a group of German POWs – teenage boys conscripted in the last days of the conflict – are captured by the Danish army and forced to perform a deadly task: the refusal and clearing of land mines along the Danish coastline. With little or no training, the prisoners soon discover that for them the war is far from over.
Nominated for the 2017 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film and inspired by real events, 'Land of Mine' exposes one previously untold story in Denmark's history.
