Event will open with Poppe's 'Hawaii'

Oscar hopefuls from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden will be screened during the sixth annual Scandinavian Film Festival L.A., running Jan. 14-16.

The Nordic festival will open with Norwegian Erik Poppe’s film “Hawaii, Oslo,” the helmer’s second feature film following 1998’s “Schpaaa.”

The festival also marks the directorial debut of Danish thesp Paprika Steen with “Aftermath,” a psychological thriller about a couple who must overcome the death of their daughter.

This year the festival’s films address a number of heavy subjects, from a brain-damaged soldier in Markku Polonen’s “The Dognail Clipper” to infertility in Alexsi Salmenpera’s “Producing Adults.”

Helmers Jorgen Leth and Lars von Trier’s “The Five Obstructions” will also unspool during the festival. The Danish film is a remake of Leth’s 1967 film “The Perfect Human,” which explores human behavior and filmmaking.

Twelve films will screen during the three-day event at the Writers Guild Theater in Los Angeles.
