Starting today, in the Open Air programme you can watch THE HUNT by Danish director Thomas Vinterberg, the feature film starring Mads Mikkelsen, this year’s recipient of Honorary Heart of Sarajevo. For his role in this film Mikkelsen won the Best Actor Award at 2012 Cannes Film Festival.
Following a tough divorce, forty-year-old Lucas has a new girlfriend and a new job, and is in the process of re-establishing his relationship with his teenage son Marcus. But things go awry. Not a lot. Just a passing remark. A random lie. And as the snow falls and the Christmas lights are lit, the lie spreads like an invisible virus. The shock and mistrust get out of hand, and the small community suddenly finds itself in a collective state of hysteria, while Lucas fights a lonely fight for his life and dignity.
