Film description

Molly Malene Stensgaard has edited seven of Lars Von Trier’s films, including the Cannes Palme d’Or winning Dancer in the Dark. Set in rural America in 1964, Björk plays an immigrant and single mother who takes refuge from her hardships by imagining herself and her factory co-workers in Hollywood musicals. Stensgaard’s impressive editing is most noticeable in the musical sequences which were filmed simultaneously using over 100 digital cameras so that multiple angles of the performance could be captured and cut together.
