Lykkelænder

/ The Raven and the Seagull

Director Lasse Lau

Year: 2018

Length: 71 min 

​Language: Danish, Greenlandic

The relationship between Greenland and Denmark is shaped by a history of colonialism, subjugation and dependence.

The film Lykkelænder/ The Raven and the Seagull sets out to dispel some of the myths and prejudices that persist to this day, even as Greenland is moving ever closer to independence. Lasse Lau and his troupe of performers blend authenticity and reconstruction to paint a portrait of how such misconceptions have influenced the collective consciousness of both nations. The result is a beautiful and relatable film about post-colonialism and indigenous identity.
