The Danish thriller Shorta (“Police” in Arabic) has just wrapped principal photography. The project, directed by duo Frederik Louis Hviid and Anders Ølholm, is set in a fictive ghetto outside the Danish capital.

Hviid, a former student at Super16 in Valby, recently directed two episodes of the successful crime TV series Follow the Money, while Ølholm, a graduate of the National Film School, has penned several important Danish productions, such as Fenar Ahmad’s Flow [+leggi anche:

The story, written in its entirety by the young duo, centres on Talib Ben Hassi, a 19-year-old boy whose life hangs by a thread. The exact details of what took place while he was in police custody remain unclear. Police officers Jens and Mike are on routine patrol in the local ghetto when news of Talib’s death comes in over the radio, igniting uncontrollable, pent-up rage in the ghetto’s youth, who want revenge. Suddenly, the two officers find themselves fair game and must fight tooth and nail to find a way out.
