Good Things Await

Good Things Await (Så meget godt i vente)

Documentary, 90min, Denmark 2014

A portrait of Niels Stokholm, an almost 80-year-old biodynamic farmer who runs his farm in accordance with spiritual laws. Danish: "Så meget godt i vente"

Director: Phie Ambo

Cinematography: Phie Ambo & Maggie Olkuska, DFF

Producer: Malene Flindt Pedersen

Editor: Theis Schmidt

Music composer: Jóhann Jóhannsson

“Kudos to Ambo for finding a style and pace that perfectly complement her protagonist. The lyrical lensing of Ambo and Maggie Olkuska, and the poetic cutting by Theis Schmidt, are taken to another level in combination with the renowned vocal group Theatre of Voices…”

Variety Film Review

“The widescreen camerawork by the director and Maggie Olkuska is in sync with the seasons and with Stokholm’s “perfect spiritual light-bulb moments” — in macro views of earthworms, spiders and dewdrops as well as long shots of the contented cattle.”
