" group of filmmaker
s, based in Copenhagen
. Their slightly-ironic
"Vow of Chastity" sets forth their strict cinema
tic rules: only shoot on location (with hand-held camera
s); only use live sound; no plot
hype (i.e. contrived action or violence); no genre
templates, etc. The tenth and final point: "The director
must not be credited". Film
s include The Celebration
(Thomas Vinterberg somehow escapes credit-anonymity)
and The Idiots
(ditto Lars von Trier).
