HDCB01132U DCC Danish Film, Television and Streaming
Danish Culture Courses
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 contributions 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,
and cultural identity. Furthermore, it explores the role of film,
TV, and streaming policy.
