The raven and the seagull

Director: Lasse Lau

The relationship between Greenland and Denmark is full of fantasy and myths. These are exactly what Danish artist Lasse Lau reflects upon in this film. But how do you give a form to the Greenlandic experience when you are an outsider yourself? Lau has created a sensitive film about authenticity and recreation by letting both elements become a part of the work, together with his characters. But also by watching and listening intently. The colonial history is entrenched in both Greenland's infinitely beautiful landscapes and in the collective consciousness. But so is the willingness to break with it and look ahead with a new political self‐awareness. The film talks about its extremely complex topics and does so with both a sense of humour and with emphasis.
