Susanne Bier for the Dallas Morning News

Susanne Bier won this year's Oscar and Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film for In a Better World.  I had just heard a great interview with her on Fresh Air when I got a call to make the most of our ten minutes with Bier at the W Hotel in downtown Austin.  You can read Chris Vognar's interview with Bier here.

In a Better World explores the themes of bullying, justice, and the cycle of violence in both small-town Denmark and war-torn Sudan, linking the mundane punishments of school children to the cruelty of warlords.
