Home / Masterworks of Danish Cinema: A Day with Mads Mikkelsen & Nikolaj Arcel
The American Cinematheque is delighted to welcome Mads Mikkelsen and Nikolaj Arcel, two of Danish cinema’s brightest talents whose careers have transcended borders into international acclaim. Returning to their Danish roots, Mikkelsen and Arcel have reunited to create THE PROMISED LAND, a historical drama that promises high stakes, vengeance, and royal flair.
A former gymnast and dancer, Mads Mikkelsen’s flexibility and stamina translates to his craft, giving him the range to play the stoic, taciturn man of action, the passionate lover, and the sympathetic fool. THE HUNT, a disquieting, suburban psychological thriller, and VALHALLA RISING, a brutally medieval action adventure, reveal Mikkelsen’s knack for embodying characters pushed to their absolute limits. Following his breakout success with A ROYAL AFFAIR, also featuring Mads Mikkelsen, director and screenwriter Nikolaj Arcel has developed an unmistakeable point of view with expertly crafted narratives, primordial themes, and epic visuals as its foundation. Join the American Cinematheque as Mikkelsen and Arcel shelter us through the deep Danish midwinter.
