Land of Mine surfaces a little-known story that took place in 1945 as the five-year Nazi occupation of the country ended. The Germans left behind more than a million land mines that needed to be removed. Who better to sacrifice for the hazard than untrained teenage German POWs? On a barren beach on the west coast, Zandvliet unfolds a gripping story that explores issues of post-war retribution and culpability while shifting perceptions of perpetrators and victims. This year’s Danish submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. In Danish and German with English subtitles.
