Event Details

Whirled Special Sunday Summer Screening Double-Bill

We will be screening a Mads Mikkelson double-bill kicking off with The Promised Land followed by Valhalla Rising, back to back with a 45 minute intermission in-between. 

The Promised Land: In 18th-century Denmark, impoverished war hero Capt. Ludvig Kahlen sets out to tame a vast, uninhabitable land on which seemingly nothing can grow. This beautiful but forbidding area is under the rule of Frederik De Schinkel, a merciless nobleman who realizes the threat Kahlen represents to his power. As a new community starts to settle in, De Schinkel swears vengeance, leading to a violent and intense confrontation between the two men.

Another Round: Four middle-aged friends test a theory stating that a certain level of blood alcohol content aids creativity. However, they find themselves in a mess after they take the experiment a bit too far.

Director: Nikolaj Arcel. Nicolas Winding Refn
