BENJAMIN CHRISTENSEN: SEALED ORDERS (DET HEMMELIGHEDSFULDE X) / BLIND JUSTICE (HÆVNENS NAT)

Benjamin Christensen (1879-1959) is probably the most innovative director of Danish silent cinema. He had full control over the creation of his films, not only as a director, but also in many cases by being producer, author and protagonist. This DVD contains his first two films.

These first films clearly show Benjamin Christensen’s mastery of cinematic expression, as well as his charismatic screen appearance.
