Qivitoq (1956): Denmark’s Best Foreign Language Film Nominee

In the first year of the foreign-language Oscar category, the five nominees were: Fellini’s “La Strada” from Italy, which won, “The Captain of Kopenick,” from the Federal Republic of Germany, “Gervais” from France, “Harp of Burma” from Japan, and “Qivitoq,” from Denmark.


Celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of Nordisk, Erik Balling’s Qivitoq is a cultural collision saga about the Danes and Eskimos in Greenland.
