Jens Loftager, Denmark, 2003

52 min.DK/Documentary

»War« is part two of a trilogy in which award winning »Words« was the first. »War« is an examination of human behaviour under the extreme conditions of war, not only the atrocities we perform and the price we have to pay for these atrocities, but also the hope that lies in the compassion shown under the most difficult conditions imaginable.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
