We are also proud to feature four films from the Criterion Collection in this six-pack, Carl Dreyer’s silent masterpiece VAMPYR, his seminal 1955 classic, ORDET, perhaps the most sumptuous food movie of all time, BABETTE’S FEAST, and Lars Von Trier’s riveting BREAKING THE WAVES. Additional titles from Criterion will be launching on Alamo On Demand in the coming months, including the showpiece of February’s Dogme 95 series, Thomas Vinterberg’s fabulous THE CELEBRATION. Rounding out this six pack is two more Academy Award nominees, PELLE THE CONQUEROR with Max Von Sydow and A ROYAL AFFAIR with Mads Mikkelsen.
And a reminder, anyone who watches all 36 films in the series will be invited to a “Meet the Danes” party in Los Angeles or New York. Dates and details will be announced later, when gathering and parties don’t sound like alien concepts. Huge thanks to our partners at the Danish Film Institute for making this celebration possible.
