Qivitoq - The Mountain Hiker (Erik Balling, 1956), the first Danish film to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film and shot on location in Greenland.

No Blu-ray available but a DVD only. Don’t know where else to ask but does it have English subtitles?

I'm a native Dane, and I can confirm that the DVD indeed has English subtitles. It comes from a fine HD remaster, so it's really a shame that Nordisk only released it on DVD. They do this with many of their titles as the blu-ray market in Denmark is pretty much non-existing. Instead, one can stream their films in 1080p on their platforms, but then, of course, it's often compressed to death and grain looks like a smudge of death. Still better than DVD, though, I think. I can check out some of the streaming services as to whether English subs are provided, if you're interested?

Thank you for confirming, ordered the DVD from CDON which was cheap fortunately. Also took the Swedish bonkers sci-fi classic Rymdinvasion I Lappland (1959) with a very hairy monster from outer space.

Sure, that would great. Thanks.
