The Hunt

A teacher is falsely accused of abuse and fights to clear his name and regain his credibility.


Why watch this film?

What is the limit of truth? How far should we blindly believe only one version of a fact? 'Jagten' is a Danish film by Thomas Vinterberg that only becomes more relevant with time and the growth of the "cancel culture". In the plot, we follow a kindergarten teacher who is accused of abuse by a five-year-old girl and becomes an outcast in his community, even without any proof. From there, remembering the traditional (and real) story of Base School, we see this man trying to regain his credibility and show those closest to him that he did not commit any abuse. The great highlight is the performance of Mads Mikkelsen ('Another Round'), which brings a pulsating force to his protagonist.
