Sons of Denmark

Danmarks sønner

Directed by Ulaa Salim
Denmark, 2019
Drama, Thriller
Direct from Rotterdam


Cornered by xenophobia, two young men become embroiled in a devilish dilemma. In response to intimidation, Zakaria decides it’s time to act, violently if need be. In Copenhagen, a member of the intelligence community tries to professionally combat the threat.

Our take

Next in our series bringing visions from the International Film Festival Rotterdam comes Ulaa Salim’s bold debut and Tiger Award competitor. A thriller as topical as it is provocative, Salim’s twisting story vividly probes the psychology of masculinity to explore the desire for social change.
