The poetic and experimental Danish documentary Carl & Niels, directed by Alexander Lind, is our pick for Holland Doc 24 in March. Lind graduated with Carl & Niels from the Danske Filmskole in 2013.

Carl and Niels are identical twins. They have been inseparable most of their lives as best friends. But now that they are in their mid-twenties, they are losing the closeness they used to have. The film centres on the transformation Carl and Niels are undergoing as they find out what - if anything - they can be for each other in their adult lives. Putting them in a series of constructed spaces and situations, the director compels the twins to relate to each other.

Screening times are:

Sunday 2 March at 16.56
Thursday 6 March at 00.33
Friday 7 March at 11.51

Happy viewing!
