The Contest: To the Stars and Back

MGP Missionen

Directed by Martin Miehe-Renard
Denmark, 2013


Karl has no desire to move to Copenhagen. He adores the dunes, the beach and the sea in the remote region where he lives with his mother and prays to God he can stay there. But he has no choice; his mother’s job means she needs to move to the big city and so Karl goes with her.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
