Frescoes in Danish Churches

Denmark, 1954 (MIFF 1957, Connoisseur's Corner)

Director: Jorgan Roos

The film tells in picture and music about the world that is living in the frescoes of the village churches. After the creation and the fall of man, the human beings are chased out of Paradise; the sinners are thrown down to the agony of Hell and the good ones are guided to eternal happiness in Heaven.
