Political series Borgen is back

Political series Borgen is back
The  Danish series Borgen - Power & Glory (8x58') is back with a new season. Sidse Babett Knudsen returns to her role as powerhouse politician Birgitte Nyborg  dealing with some of the biggest political issues of our time; the relevance of the Danish Realm in the modern world, the superpowers’ battle for control of the Arctic, America’s role on the global stage, China’s entry onto the international political scene – and not least – the climate crisis.

The main story focuses on the struggle for power and what power does to people – both professionally and on a personal level. The struggle for power – or the struggle to retain power – challenges and changes the characters and Birgitte Nyborg, Katrine Fønsmark and the other central characters are forced to recognize that their desire for ‘control’ is in danger of corrupting them and denying them their humanity and sense of integrity.

The series is distributed by DR International Sales.
