Land of Mine: Martin Zandvliet’s WWII Drama Wins Three European Awards

The European Film Awards handed out Martin Zandvliet’s Land of Mine three of the first seven prizes for below-the-line categories.

Land of Mine is a gripping historical drama about a group of young German POWs forced to de-mine Danish beaches after the Axis defeat.

The film earned Camilla Hjelm Knudsen the Carlo di Palma award for best European cinematographer.

It also won for costume design (Stefanie Bieker) as well as hair and makeup (Barbara Kreuzer).

“Land of Mine” represents Denmark in the foreign-language Oscar race and is released in the U.S. and Latin America by Sony Pictures Classics.
