Nordic film festival to screen 'The Sunfish'

Akbank Sanat will screen director Soren Balle's "The Sunfish" as a part of Nordic Film Days. Kesse, 45, is a third-generation fisherman living in the small and windblown town of Hirtshals, in Jutland. As a result of new fishery policies and the global financial crisis, the fishermen are slowly succumbing to the pressure of competing with larger fishing enterprises. Kesse is struggling to survive, desperately holding on to the only way of life he knows. But desperate times require desperate measures, and so due to increasing financial pressure, Kesse is forced to find more notorious and alternative ways of making ends meet. This in turn leads him to meet his polar opposite, the female marine biologist Gerd.

When: June 17- June 22

Where: Akbank Sanat
