The Next Best Picture Podcast – Interview With “Flee” Editor, Janus Billeskov Jansen

By Will Mavity 

Janus Billeskov Jansen has been the go-to editor in the Danish film industry, working with directors such as Thomas Vinterberg (“Another Round“), Nicolas Winding Refn (“Pusher II”), and Bille August (“Pelle The Conquerer”), but also working on acclaimed documentaries such as “The Act Of Killing” and “Strong Island.” His most recent effort was on the 2021 Danish submission for Best International Feature, “Flee” (which is also contending for Best Documentary and Best Animated Feature Film). With NEON’s acclaimed documentary releasing in more theaters this past week and continuing to expand, we wanted to revisit just what made this film so special, and through Jansen’s work, we get a taste of that. Please take a listen down below and check here if theaters are currently showing the film in your area.
