One year after a major bomb attack in Copenhagen, radicalisation around the country has intensified, ethnic tensions are running high and an extreme nationalist candidate looks set for a landslide election victory. Amidst this turmoil, two men involved with a radical organisation find themselves facing a grave decision together.

With hints of Martin Scorsese and Jacques Audiard, director Ulaa Salim taps into a political climate that will feel all too familiar for audiences across Europe. Sons of Denmark is an ambitious, powerful, unnerving and provocative film that marks Salim out as a talent to keep an eye on. 

Ulaa Salim won best director for Sons of Denmark at the Seattle Film Festival.
