The Healing, 2021
Dir. Hannah Elbke & Natalia Anna Cipiel


An artistic parade and healing session aimed to remove the social housing community AKB Lundtoftegade (Copenhagen) from the so-called ghetto list – a list with fateful consequences.
1,500 people in Copenhagen live in social housing in Lundtoftegade under threat of ending up on the government’s so-called “hard list of ghettos” and 60% of the residents being forcibly relocated as a result. When administrative channels and dialogue with policy makers are closed and evictions seem imminent and inevitable, a group of residents, determined to fight to the end, see only one way out: to ask for spiritual help and expel the forces of evil through ‘The Healing’, a community ritual to heal their social housing area and change their fate. Under the leadership of Sǿren-Emil, young and old from different backgrounds and conditions, bring their creativity and contribute their art to this collective performance project. Will the healing succeed?


Warmly welcome!
