Land of Mine

November 13 @ 7:30 pm

 Sunshine Coast Film Society

Denmark/Germany 2015, 100min, drama. Director: Martin Zandvliet. German, Danish, English with English subtitles.

Based on actual events, this harrowing film takes place in Denmark at the end of WW2 when young German POWs, mostly teens with almost no training, are forced to clear the beaches of over 1 million hidden land mines.
Although the consequences are horrific, the Danes have little sympathy for their former occupiers. The film serves as a poignant reminder that revenge destroys more than it satisfies and compassion can help the healing process.

Tickets $5 members or $9 for single-event members.

The ethical tension between justice and vengeance is the subject of Martin Zandvliet’s Land of Mine, a tight and suspenseful film.
— A. O. Scott, The NYTimes
