After The Celebration
A narrative based on a true story.
By Lisbeth Jessen for DR (2002)

In 1996, Allan told the story of his life on the radio programme ‘Koplev’s Lounge’. The broadcast inspired Thomas Vinterberg to make his dogma movie ‘The Celebration’ (Festen) in 1998. Now Allan and Thomas meet for the first time.

Winner of the 2003 Prix Italia.

Made in collaboration with DR – you can listen to After The Celebration (Efter Festen) and more montages on their archive website.
