CPH:DOX – Jon Bang Carlsen

The CPH:DOX programme is launched. The festival runs from April 21 to May 12. The cinemas are scheduled to re-open in the beginning of May so the festival intends to be part of this (cross fingers…) festive celebration of watching (also) documentaries on a big screen. Otherwise the festival’s 177 films will be available (for those who are in Denmark) online as well as an enormous line-up of events. Check the website:

On this site – – we will follow the festival from now on with recommendations of films to be watched. It will be in English as many of the films will show up to be watched at other festivals around the world.

”The Banality of Grief”… I watched it on the big screen months ago and last night on my mac. It moves me immensely and again – as for decades – reminds me of how important a poetic filmmaker Jon is. For the Danes his last film is right now available at CPH:DOX and it also works online because of its intensity and beautiful images and words. Here is what Jon writes about his love letter to Madeleine:

“Nothing is. Everything is becoming. Even life already lived. After my wife died I tried to quick start my days again by throwing myself into shooting a new film, but when I looked through the viewfinder I felt the motives I was focusing on with my camera were hiding what I really wanted to see. Everything in the little American town reminded me of your absence. Thus this little stammering love letter came into being.”
