'LAND OF THE FREE' NOMINATED FOR NORDIC:DOX AWARD / by Mauricio Gonzalez-Aranda

Camilla Magdid's upcoming film LAND OF THE FREE will be having its World Premiere this March at the CPH:DOX film festival where it is nominated for the NORDIC:DOX Award; a selection of the best and brightest in cinema from the Nordic countries.

LAND OF THE FREE is Camilla Magid's most recent film following her acclaimed documentary WHITE BLACK BOY in 2012 which has received praise from the Danish Critic Association.

The film is produced by Heidi Elise Christensen and Signe Byrge Sørensen with co-producers Tuffi Films and Elli Toivoniemi.

LAND OF THE FREE is set in South Central Los Angeles, where it tackles hard hitting cultural issues and works to show the humanity in a deeply troubling environment where the prison industrial system often targets and holds back people of color. These issues are constantly growing in relevance as the political climate of the United States becomes more and more tense with The Black Lives Matter Movement and Trump Administration. 

If you have the opportunity to attend CPH:DOX, look out for the upcoming schedule and be sure to see LAND OF THE FREE.
