Various – Danske piger viser alt AKA Danish Girls Show Everything (1996)

Quote:
This Danish omnibus film consists of 20 shorts, by a bevy of international directors; the project
as a whole was conceived by Danish visual artist Ane Mette Ruge and Dutch opera-director Jacob F. Schokking. The title represents a pun; in addition to its obvious sensationalistic implications (which is used ironically – almost nothing in the film, aside from some incidental nudity, is exploitative), the “everything” refers to the plethora of subjects at hand, with the filmmakers exploring topics from national identity to ornithology, to trips abroad to Vietnam and Brazil, to the history of Berlin. Shown at the 1998 Gothenburg Film Festival. Read More »
