This course studies contemporary Nordic film. For years, the work of Roy Anderson, Lukas Moodysson, Aki Kaurismäki, Dagur Kari, and others have set a special tone and atmosphere in Scandinavian cinema. In this course we study how the heirs to Bergman, von Trier, and the Dogme 95 movement ask new questions and what elements, themes, and stories are typical of new Scandinavian film.
