While filming DANCER IN THE DARK Trier famously drove Björk to near madness as a result of his ruthless approach to direction. The end result is a truly remarkable performance which won her the Best Actress award at Cannes in 2000 as well as the Best Film Award for the film.

1964, America. Czech immigrant Selma (Björk) is working at a small pressing plant, trying to build a life for herself and her young son. Life is hard but Selma has a secret passion for American musicals which keeps her going in even the darkest of moments.
