  • The Average of the Average

    2011. Denmark. Directed by Michael Madsen. With Denmark’s first 3-D documentary, director Madsen (Into Eternity) questions how we represent human life. The story is divided into 13 chapters of small, seemingly mediocre moments, both true and fictitious, that define life in the town of Middlefart in 2011—from a young girl communicating with a friend on her mobile phone, to the mayor visiting a fortune teller—as well as 3-D photographs of the town in the 1880s. 50 min.
