Holm is a police officer who has been demoted to desk work as an emergency phone dispatcher for Denmark’s version of 911. He takes a call from a frightened woman named Iben, who says she has been kidnapped and is being driven by her captor to some unknown location. This crisis instantly gives Holm a crime to solve and a way to prove to himself that he is still able to do some good in the world. But he sees the outlines of the case that he wants to see, one that gives him the opportunity to be a certain kind of hero, which leads him to make some tragic assumptions and miscalculations. The Guilty is about the way we perceive the world around us, not in an objective, fair way, but rather in a way guided by our own biases and our need to have purpose in the world. It ends up exploring intriguing, timely ideas about how the power handed to people like law enforcement officers can lead to hubris, arrogance, and violence. 2018 Sundance Film Festival, winner: Audience Award; 2018 International Film Festival & Awards Macao, winner: Best Actor and Director.
