Lund Fantastic Film festival are happy to host the scandinavian premiere of director Andes Banke’s Enemy Lines. Banke is one of the locals and will also be our only guest this year (we are in the middle of a pandemic!). You might already know him as he is the man behind the swedish horror comedy Frostbite (2006) or maybe you have run into him during one of our many festivals. Now he is back with a World War II action thriller, starring Ed Westwick, John Hannah and Tom Wisdom.
November 1943. A British commando squad is teamed with an American officer on a covert mission into Poland, deep behind enemy lines.
Working with the resistance they cross the harsh wilderness intent on kidnapping and extracting a sought-after Polish scientist, Dr Fabian, from the Germans.
Fabian is known to hold information on secret innovations that would prove vital to the Allied efforts.
With a German hunter unit on their tail and a Russian squad also intent on kidnapping Fabian for their own ends, it becomes a race against time, that for the winners, will change the shape of the war.
After the film will we have a q&a with Banke, the only official guest of the 2020 pandemic edition!
