In early May, Doc Studies graduate Anders Birch begins shooting a television feature doc in the U.S. for Denmark’s public broadcaster DR1. Along with Danish journalist Jakob Volver, Anders will shoot, direct and produce a 60-minute film on a little-known but long-established Danish village in the heart of the American midwest.
DR1 is the Danish broadcaster which has won great acclaim for its celebrated productions in television crime drama with the series “Borgen” and “The Killing”. It is also a noted documentary programmer, commissioning and acquiring works worldwide, including the recent documentaries Armadillo and The Monastery. Anders’ film originates from a proposal he pitched to DR1 earlier this year.
