In The Killing of a Danish Swan, 'D'(Kristina Korsholm) and 'H' (Janus Bakrawi) are a couple
composed by a Danish woman and a "new Danish" man. They are having dreams together
about some kind of future and projection as a couple and maybe a family, and in relation
with the society they live in. The film shows a babushkas game where dreams inside dreams
make a difficult interpretation of what is happening, what is real and what is not, what is part
of their minds and prejuidices and what is in fact the fear of non-communication that they are
The Killing of a Danish Swan is constructed by fragments and a collage of visual files and the
performance from the actors and their characters in action. At the same time, the film explores
the limits and the trespass of genres, between the documentary style and the traditional
fiction interpretation. There is a conceptual revision quoted along the film related to the fairy
tales of Hans Christian Andersen.
