“John Andreas Andersen’s The Quake should be required viewing for all of today’s Hollywood franchise jockeys. It shows you how to make one of these things without sacrificing your characters’ souls (or your own, for that matter).”—Vulture

“More cerebral and less CGI-effects laden than most similar efforts, this sequel demonstrates that Hollywood has nothing on the Scandinavians when it comes to making exciting disaster pics.”—The Hollywood Reporter

New Nordic Cinema presents some of the best new films from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. Running in coordination with our exhibition Nordic Impressions, this series showcases the rich diversity and global character of Nordic art.
