Viewing Notes for Land of Mine

Join us for the continuation of our 37th annual film series on Wed., Nov. 7th, 7:30 PM with Under Sandet/Land of Mine Martin Zandvliet, Denmark (2015) 100 min. 

Based on real events in Denmark in the immediate aftermath of World War II, Land of Mine tells the story of teenage German POWs who are forced to clear land mines from a Danish beach. As the Danish sergeant who oversees the young men realizes the consequences of the dangerous work on the people he has spent the whole war dehumanizing, he finds himself confronted with a choice upon which rests the soul of the film: can he let these men die in an attempt to retrieve honor for his country? Widely celebrated in Denmark, Land of Mine is a sobering act of witness and a reminder of the ineradicable humanity that can be found even in the direst circumstances. In Danish and German with English subtitles.
Please note: this film contains scenes of combat-related violence. 

“An act of expiation, Land of Mine is honorable, harrowing and stirring.” – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
