The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced this year’s Oscar nominations and the Danish short film ‘Knight of Fortune’, directed by Lasse Lyskjær Noer, is nominated in the Live-action Short Film category.

The loss of a loved one, the grief, the risk of yellow skin, and a coffin, this is too much for Karl to face. It is much easier to fix a broken lamp. Then he meets Torben – a destined brother. An absurd, humourous, and melodic meeting between two old men captured by grief.

Producers: Christian Norlyk / Jalabert Production, Kim Magnusson / M&M Productions. Starring Leif Andrée, Dick Kaysø, Jesper Lohmann, Dorte Rømer and Jens Jørn Spottag.
