Moderator Annette Insdorf interviews the talent behind Denmark’s official submission for the Best International Feature Film category of the 93rd Academy Awards. The dark comedy has already swept the European Film Awards — winning Best Film, Director, Screenplay, and Actor for Mads Mikkelsen — and received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Foreign Language Film. Another Round is about four middle-aged teachers and friends, who test a theory that their lives will improve if they maintain a constant level of alcohol in their blood.
Vinterberg’s international career began with The Celebration (1998) — a bitterly satiric, award-winning portrait of family secrets and recriminations — and continued with films including Far from the Madding Crowd (2015), starring Carey Mulligan. Tobias Lindholm’s previous collaborations with Vinterberg include The Hunt (Oscar nominated, 2012), a searing drama about a man (played by Mads Mikkelsen) falsely accused of sexually abusing a child. Lindholm is not only a leading Danish screenwriter, but the director of A War (Oscar nominated, 2016): this drama set in Afghanistan raises moral issues about men in combat.
