As a co-founder of the Dogme 95 movement, Thomas Vinterberg helped draft the revolutionary manifesto’s rule #9, which states that the director must not be mentioned in the credits. The Danish filmmaker has since continued to awe audiences with his stories about the often harmonious, but also fraught relationship of the individual to the community. Vinterberg grew up in a hippy commune in 1970s Copenhagen, an experience that informs not only the story and milieu portrayed in his newest film The Commune in Competition, but also his ways of interacting with his cast and crew on film sets. Vinterberg focuses on the powers and complexities of collective working in his universe, from his youth through Dogme and in his latest work.
