Nikolaj Bendix Skyum Larsen
Promised Land

Tue 15 - Fri 18 December, 2015

Rivington Place

London, UK

Free screening, no booking required

A four-day looped screening of Promised Land by the internationally acclaimed Danish artist Nikolaj Bendix Skyum Larsen.

Larsen’s matter takes its departure in ‘real life’ issues - and in recent years displacement and migration has been his main area of research.

With recent media coverage of the migrant campsites in Calais reaching fever pitch, Larsen’s Promised Land offers a poetic counter point. It portrays young migrants Mohammed, Jafar, Hasan, Camron, Khan, Reza and his three-year old son, Nima. They will go to any length to cross the Channel to enter Britain in the hope of finding a better life.

Promised Land combines beautiful cinematography with raw footage captured by migrants themselves to provide insight into their close friendships, hopes and dreams. The film presents the different ways of coping with the misery of their situation, and the dangerous attempts at getting into Britain - their Promised Land.

Promised Land is 47 minutes in length, and will start on the hour from 11am - 5pm.
