ZentropaZentropa, or Zentropa Entertainments, is a Danish film company started in 1992 by director Lars von Trier and producer Peter Aalbæk Jensen. Zentropa is named from the train company Zentropa in the film ''Europa'' (1991), which started the collaboration between Lars von Trier and Peter Aalbæk Jensen.
It has produced over 70 feature films and has become the largest film production company in Scandinavia. It owns a number of subsidiary companies in Europe. Zentropa is also responsible for creating a large studio complex called ''Filmbyen'' (Film City), where both Zentropa and many other film-related companies are located.
Zentropa may be best known for creating the Dogme 95 movement, leading to such acclaimed films as ''Idioterne'' (1998), ''Festen'' (1998) and ''Mifunes sidste sang'' (1999).
In 1998, von Trier made history by having his company Zentropa be the world's first mainstream film company to produce hardcore pornographic films, under the division Puzzy Power. Three of these films, ''Constance'' (1998), ''Pink Prison'' (1999), and the adult/mainstream crossover-feature ''All About Anna'' (2005), were made primarily for a female audience and were extremely successful in Europe, with the first two being directly responsible for the legalising of pornography in Norway in March 2006.Zentropa's initiative spearheaded a European wave of female-friendly porn films from directors such as Anna Span, Erika Lust and Petra Joy, while von Trier's company Zentropa was forced to abandon the experiment due to pressure from its English business partners. In July 2009, women's magazine ''Cosmopolitan'' ranked ''Pink Prison'' as No. 1 in its Top Five of the best women's porn, calling it the "role model for the new porn-generation". Provided by Wikipedia
