Miss Viborg

This fall at Scandinavia House, experience Nordic comedy at its darkest with “Svart Humor”! “If there’s a dead body in Denmark, someone is going to make a joke about it,” director Anders Jensen once said; Nordic comedies are as known for their deadpan, dry wit as for their occasionally noir subject matter, celebrating the “svart/sort” (dark) side of life’s hilarities.

On October 11, see Marianne Blicher’s Miss Viborg (Denmark, 2022). Former beauty queen and senior citizen Solvej (Ragnhild Kaasgaard) lives alone with her dog in a social housing area on the outskirts of Danish provincial town Viborg. Each day, she performs the same old routines — roaming around on her scooter dealing her prescription drugs, dreaming of a world outside Viborg and reminiscing over old love letters from her past.

When unforeseen circumstances bring her neighbor’s daughter, rebellious 17-year-old Kate (Isabella Møller Hansen) into her life, an unlikely friendship forms, bringing new hope for the future.

Winner of awards including Best Picture and Vision Award from IndiePix; Best Feature, Best Written Film, Audience Award at Mag Film Fest; and Special Jury Award at Monte-Carlo Film Festival, Miss Viborg is an ode to eccentricity, and a celebration of community found in unexpected places.
