Lars von Trier

Lars von Trier studied film at the Danish Film School and attracted international attention with his very first feature, “Forbrydelsens element” (1984). A highly distinctive blend of film noir and German Expressionism with stylistic nods to Dreyer, Andrei Tarkovsky and Orson Welles. His subsequent features “Epidemic” (1987) and “Europa” (1991) have been equally ambitious both thematically and visually, though his international fame is most likely to be based on “Riget” (1994), a TV soap opera blending hospital drama, ghost story and Twin Peaks (1990)-style surrealism that was so successful in Denmark that it was released internationally as a 280-minute theatrical feature.
