This chapter presents an interview with Lars von Trier by the Danish journalist Martin Krasnik. The interview took place in von Trier’s home in Brede, a small town just outside Copenhagen. It was broadcast on the Danish public television station DR2 in its entirety on January 12, 2015. The interview covers a variety of topics about von Trier’s life, including alcoholism, his father, rituals and religion, and the feeling of not belonging, among others. This interview also explores von Trier’s interest in everything Jewish, and how this is tied to the story of his father. It also delves into von Trier’s childhood and, in particular, looks at his experiences with psychiatric treatment.

Keywords:   interview, Martin Krasnik, alcoholism, Lars von Trier’s life, Lars von Trier’s childhood, Jews, psychiatric treatment, DR2
