Under Sandet

Based on extraordinary true events, writer/director Martin Zandvliet’s multi award-winning historical drama tells a gripping story of redemption and forgiveness, as it follows a group of captured soldiers in Denmark in the immediate aftermath of WWII.
Stories of conflict and its repercussions abound in cinema, but few have so eloquently focussed on the human connection between conflict’s ‘winners’ and the vanquished, and the emotional impact of occupation and nationalism. Featuring arresting performances from the ensemble cast and breathtaking cinematography, Zandvliet’s sweeping drama makes for riveting and deeply-affecting cinema that demands to be seen on the big screen.
