Nicolas Winding Refn’s feature film “Pusher” has defined Denmark, a particular Danish masculinity. The film, which has become part of the Danish film canon, is about masculinity, violence, drugs, and gave a picture of especially Copenhagen as a violent place filled with “gangsters”. In Pusher4 Vesterskov examines the Danish identity and the Danish film industry. The performance look at Danish masculinity (based on Pusher) in the encounter with Swedish feminism. It’s about gaining a view of oneself and having the opportunity to negotiate one’s gaze.
