DCC Danish Film, Television and Streaming

Course content

The course gives a portrait of Denmark through its output of popular entertainment and high art within film, TV, and Streaming. The course places internationally famous auteurs such as Carl Th. Dreyer, Lars von Trier, Thomas Vinterberg and Susanne Bier in their cultural context, and it presents important genres such as youth film, realism, drama, comedy, pornography, and documentary. Denmark has always been internationally extremely mobile from the world domination of Nordisk Film studios during the silent period to the wildly successful sex comedies of the 1970s. The recent successes of Nordic Noir and Danish TV and streaming series continues to make extraordinary contribution to entertainment and art film, tv and streaming: Overwhelming success in recent years is witnessed by the many Emmy, BAFTA, Cannes, and Oscar wins. The course interrogates the role of screen sexuality, gender and racial representations, cultural identity and it explores the role of film, TV, and streaming policy.
