The Guilty

Tuesday, November 27th – World Cinema

Police officer Asger Holm is now confined to police headquarters when he is demoted to the desk of an emergency dispatcher. The monotony of his job changes when he answers a panicked call from a kidnapped woman. When the call is suddenly disconnected, the search for the woman and her kidnapper begins. This innovative and unrelenting Danish thriller uses a single location of the police station to great effect, ratcheting up the tension as twists pile up and secrets are revealed. Winner of the Audience Award for World Cinema at Sundance Festival and Denmark’s submission for the Academy Award. In Danish with subtitles. (85 mins)
