The Danish film The Hunt (Jagten) directed by Thomas Vinterberg will be shown in Deptford Cinema this evening, in Danish with English subtitles.

Lucas (Mads Mikkelsen), a highly-regarded school teacher, has been forced to start over having overcome a tough divorce. Just as things are starting to go his way, his life is shattered. An untruthful remark throws the small community into a collective state of hysteria. The lie is spreading and Lucas is forced to fight a lonely fight for his life and dignity.

THE HUNT is a disturbing portrait of how a lie can quickly become truth- a modern tale of a witch-hunt, injustice, guilt and ultimately forgiveness. Showing how fragile a community can become when gossip, doubt and malice are allowed to flourish. It is a stirring portrait of a man struggling to  absolve himself,and a father and son reaching out for one another as their world crumbles
