Denmark 2015 85 mins.

Idyllic suburban life is shattered when news spreads of a viral infection at a neighboring rest home. Soon enough, the military rolls in, placing the entire town under quarantine. As the virus spreads, the strictures of quiet family life begin to break down under the pressures of impending danger. Mikkelsen’s debut is a tense and clever take on the zombie genre and far more compelling than any season of The Walking Dead. “It’s the kind of noirish horror that is rapidly becoming extinct.” —Peter Martin, Twitch Film.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
