The Hunt

The Hunt

We are a small community. The happiness of our children is everything. Our hopes and dreams rest in these tiny souls. 

In a small town in northern Denmark, the children celebrate Harvest Festival.

Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold directs The Hunt by David Farr (The Night ManagerSpooks), based on the critically acclaimed Danish film thriller Jagten, by Thomas Vinterberg and Tobias Lindholm.
