The OSCARS wrapped last night so we wanted to give a tribute to the two films that were shown at our festival that won the big award.
2nd Film: THE DANISH POET
The film follows Kaspar Jørgensen, a Danish poet in the 1940s who is seeking inspiration. At the suggestion of his psychiatrist, Dr. Mørk, he travels to Norway to meet the famous author Sigrid Undset. However, after arriving in Norway, he meets Ingeborg, a farmer’s daughter, and they fall in love. He proposes to her, but discovers that she is already engaged, at her father’s wish. She promises not to cut her hair until they are reunited, and Kaspar returns to Denmark.
THE DANISH POET played at the WILDsound FEEDBACK Film Festival in 2008. It’s an amazing Animation that was produced by the National Film Board of Canada
