LAAMB (2013)
Directed by Kristoffer Hegnsvad

Senegalese wrestling derives from ritual manhood trials and has developed into a national sport with packed stadiums and huge prizes. Today, the fight is supplemented with bare knuckle boxing but without any protection. The promise of a golden future attracts thousands of young men, who literally have to fight their way to the top. This is the story of a 22 year old cattle herder and his attempts to become a pro wrestler in Senegal. It's a modern tale about fighting ones way out of poverty, and it's the story of a sport filled with myths and extreme voodoo rituals.

Standing on Water (2015)
Directed by Peter Alsted

Standing on Water is a story of overcoming your fears and following your passion. It's the journey of how Casper Steinfath despite his fear of water became one of the best stand up paddle surfers in the world, as the only person from Denmark. It's a story of how far passion can take you in life, even if you grow up in a small and isolated fishing village in northern Denmark - in the middle of nowhere. Strong family bonds, brotherhood, and the birth of a Danish surf community in what today is known as Cold Hawaii set the stage in this meditative portrait of a life lived by and for the ever-changing ocean.
