About the Film:

Enjoying the nightlife of 1943 Copenhagen, jazz guitarist Arne Itkin (David Dencik) is seemingly immune to the hardships of war, as the Danish government opts for a compliant relationship with Nazi Germany. He is initially skeptical when his terrified wife Miriam (Danica Curcic) hears rumors of the round-up and deportation of Danish Jews. An overnight raid, however, forces the couple to flee their home with their five-year-old son. Aided by a church pastor and members of the underground resistance, they set out for a fishing village where refugees await passage to Sweden by boat. But the allegiance and motives of the fishermen is not always clear. Based on true events, the well-paced and tightly edited ACROSS THE WATERS is directed and co-written by Nicolo Donato, whose own grandfather was among the courageous Danish fishermen to ferry war refugees to safety.
