Land of Mine, directed by the Danish director Martin Zandvliet, won the Göteburg Film Festival’s Dragon Award for Best Nordic Film on Saturday evening. The prize sum is one million SEK, which makes it one of the world’s largest film prizes. Land of Mine tells the story of a forgotten part of Danish history: how German prisoners of war were allowed to stay after the war and clear the Danish beaches of German mines. This year’s jury was composed of the director Laurie Anderson, actress Saga Becker, director Christian Braad Thomsen, screenwriter and producer Sigurjón Kjartansson, photographer Anna Myking and the executive director of the Helsinki International Film Festival Sara Norberg.
