DENMARK | 84 minutes | 2018

An accident on the Copenhagen worksite of a new metro line catches two workers and a photographer unawares. Inside the massive tunnel borer, they find themselves trapped in a hellish airlock, facing an ever-dwindling oxygen supply. A strong and surprising feature début that addresses the primal fear of confinement, Cutterhead is also a searingly relevant statement on the issue of migrant workers. Rasmus Kloster Bro evokes terror, anguish and discomfort as he keeps things at an unrelenting fever pitch in this closed-room tour de force. A survival film of nail-biting claustrophobia, potent and intelligent. NORTH-AMERICAN PREMIERE
