Opinion: February 2012 - Zentropa

Established in 1992 by acclaimed director Lars Von Trier and collaborator Peter Aalbaek Jensen (a producer on Into the White), Zentropa has produced over 70 feature films and is the largest film production company in Scandinavia. Into the White is actually the first film to be produced by the Norwegian branch of the production company.
 
Zentropa may be best known for creating the Dogme 95-movement, leading to such acclaimed films as Idioterne (1998),Festen (
1998) and Mifunes sidste sang (1999).


 
It was the first mainstream film company to produce hardcore pornographic films for women: Constance (1998), Pink Prison(1999), HotMen CoolBoyz (2000) and the adult/mainstream-crossover feature All About Anna (2005). Its also responsible for creating a large studio complex called Filmbyen, where both Zentropa and many other film-related companies are located.


 
Zentropa is named from the train company Zentropa in the film Europa (1991), which started the collaboration between Lars von Trier and Peter Aalbæk Jensen.


 
Arguably, Zentropa is more popularly know for such projects as 
Dogville (2003) starring Nicole KidmanDancer in the Dark (2000) starring Björk and the Oscar-nominated After the Wedding (2006).
 
Peter Aalbæk Jensen has executive produced over 70 theatrical feature films and many television productions, has founded a long list of subsidiary companies and is widely regarded as the most important Danish film producer since the 1990s. Into the White is sure to benefit from the support from such a prolific production company and established producer.
