About The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath

“Three times Randolph Carter dreamed of the marvelous city, and three times was he snatched away while still he paused on the high terrace above it.”

Thus begins H. P. Lovecraft’s epic tale of the courageous dreamer Randolph Carter and his search for the mystical sunset city by petitioning the gods of Kadath. During his journey, he travels deep into the world of dream, to the edge of the world, to the moon and back, and to the heights and depths of human and… inhuman experience.

About the Danish Film Institute

The main purpose of the Danish Film Institute is to promote film art, film culture and cinema culture in Denmark.

The Danish Film Institute is the national agency supporting and encouraging Danish film and cinema culture.

We support the development, production and distribution of Danish films and offer funding for international co-productions.

Support programmes extend to digital games, film education and promotion at international film festivals. A minimum of 25 percent of all subsidies are earmarked for children and youth films.

Situated in central Copenhagen, the Danish Film Institute houses the Cinematheque and also includes a library with videotheque and a film studio for children to explore the craft of filmmaking.

We manage the stills, posters and film archives and run the streaming sites for teaching, for watching Danish silent films and for exploring historical documentary films and clips from and about Denmark.

The Danish Film Institute operates under the Ministry of Culture in accordance with the Film Act of 1997. Its current form was established in 1997 by merging three existing government institutions: the Danish Film Institute (feature fiction films), Statens Filmcentral (documentary and short films) and the Danish Film Museum (the Archives).

The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath will be playing August 13, 2021 and August 24, 2021.
