Over the last two decades or so, the New Danish Cinema has established itself as an important source of cinematic renewal & innovation, & as a model for how small, minor or peripheral cinemas can survive in an industry dominated by Global Hollywood.
Following in the footsteps of critically-acclaimed The Danish Directors (also published by Intellect), The Danish Directors 2 provides a practitioner's perspective on the social, cultural, & economic milieus in which Danish ?lm-makers have been able to develop their practice, & to thrive. With insider information about the making, marketing & distribution of award-winning ?lms, & interviews with seminal directors such as &ers Thomas Jensen, Annette K. Olesen, & Lone Scher?g, The Danish Directors 2 allows readers entry into what might seem to be a forbidding body of work. The editors are knowledgeable & sensitive interrogators, & their appreciation of the speci?c qualities of each director's work elicits thoughtful replies. This volume will appeal to students, scholars, & cinephiles alike.
