The trailer for upcoming Danish police thriller Shorta is now available from Vertigo Releasing.

Releasing on UK cinemas on the 3rd September, a new poster and trailer have been released for police thriller Shorta.

Anders Ølholm & Frederik Louis Hviid’s timely, compelling directorial debut premiered to great acclaim at the Venice Film Festival and recently played at the Glasgow and Dublin Film Festivals. Similar to last year’s Les Miserables, the film looks to focus on the moral complexities of policing as well as the racial and xenophobic attitudes faced in key parts of Europe.

Police officers, Jens and Mike, are on a routine patrol when news spreads of 19-year-old Talib Ben Hassi’s death whilst in police custody. As tensions escalate in the neighbourhood and the community’s youth seek revenge, the two officers find themselves in a volatile situation.

Shorta will be released in UK and Irish cinemas & digital on 3rd September.
