First Copenhagen shooting victim identified as film maker

The Danish Film Institute said the 55-year-old man killed at the free speech event in Copenhagen was documentary filmmaker Finn Noergaard. The institute’s chief Henrik Bo Nielsen said he was shocked and angry to find out Noergaard was gunned down while attending a discussion on art and free speech.

Noergaard directed and produced documentaries for Danish television, including the 2004 “Boomerang boy” about an Australian boy’s dreams to become a world boomerang champion and the 2008 “Le Le” about Vietnamese immigrants in Denmark.
