“In my opinion, The Cake Dynasty is a new type of Danish narrative, written with coarse-grained humor. It is a love story between two people who – who in each own way – feels alienated. The goal is to put the two most central themes in the Danish consciousness into play: the perception of immigrants and health fanaticism. In their own way, I believe these two themes dominate, or perhaps even haunt, the Danes today. With The Cake Dynasty, I want to unfold these themes through a rather grotesque narrative and imagery, making it possible for the audience to see themselves portrayed in a dark, humorous way. In short, I want to give the Danes the opportunity to ventilate their pinched anxiety through laughter.”

Christian Lollike makes film under the artist’s name, KOLLEKTIVET (The Collective).
