Video | 4k | color | 10'15'' | Denmark / Sweden | 2015
With references to landscape painting from the Romantic era and to silent film Henrik Lund Jørgensen draws inspiration from the works of the Danish film maker Carl Th. Dreyer in the making of his new video The Recruitment (And Escape) Of A Plastic Soldier (2015). In a cinematic language a narrative arises that exchange concepts as recruitment and flight and for whom it concerns.
