Across the Waters

Fuglene over sundet

NICOLO DONATO
Denmark, 2016
95 minutes, Color

Enjoying the nightlife of 1943 Copenhagen, guitarist Arne Itkin (David Dencik) is seemingly immune to the hardships of war as the Danish government opts for a compliant relationship with Nazi Germany. He is initially skeptical when his terrified wife, Miriam (Danica Curcic), hears rumors of the round-up and deportation of Danish Jews. An overnight raid, however, forces the couple to flee their home with 5-year-old son Jakob (Anton Dalgård Guleryüz). Aided by a church pastor and underground resistance, they set out on a journey for the fishing village of Gilleleje, where refugees await passage to Sweden by boat. Amidst lurking danger from the Gestapo and their collaborators, the family puts its fate in the hands of strangers. Based on true events, Across the Waters is directed and co-written by Nicolo Donato, whose own grandfather was among the courageous Danish fisherman to ferry war refugees to safety.—Atlanta Jewish Film Festival

In Danish with English subtitles
