Synopsis Denmark, 1969. News of the murder of Nobel Peace Prize winner Martin Luther King get to the Frits' family farm, just as his revolutionary message of a free, equalitarian world had. Everything is upside down in the household, the father has fallen into depression and on top of that, school is all about boredom and reprimands at the headmaster's office. But things are going to change: the father cheers up and a new teacher arrives at school, he listens to rock and has some Che Guevara posters and above all, he questions the headmaster and his cruel education methods.
Director bio Born 1961, Denmark. Graduated in direction at the National Film School of Denmark, 1989. After directing several shorts and working for television, his feature film debut Portland (1996) was screened at the 34th edition of Gijón Film Festival and chosen for the Official Selection in Berlin, where his most recent work We Shall Overcome won a Crystal Bear.
