Main entry, Swanston St
Enjoy free screenings of foreign-language film adaptations of Les Misérables celebrating the novel's universal themes.
On Thursday 18 September, we'll be screening a 16mm print of Haevnens Nat (Night of Vengeance also known as Blind Justice), courtesy of the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia. Inspired by Les Misérables, and directed and written by Benjamin Christensen, the film was released in Denmark in 1916.
A man falsely accused of murder, and on the run with his small son, is recaptured and imprisoned for many years, during which time he plots a complex revenge. A social melodrama of guilt and redemption, featuring masterfully constructed scenes of sophisticated suspense and artful cinematography, Haevnens Nat was the most expensive Danish film of its time.
