    Dogville is a movie directed by Lars von Trier, released in 2003. A beautiful fugitive, Grace, arrives in the isolated Dogville. With encouragement, the community agrees to hide her. Later the people of Dogville demand a deal in exchange for the risk of harbouring Grace.

    The entire film was shot in a large, black space. Apart from some windows and props, most of the decor (streets, walls, bushes, bench & pets) is described by painting outlines and descriptions in Glaser Stencil in white paint on the set floor. The intertitles between the chapters, and the end credits are set in Trebuchet.

    Policemen from outside Dogville arrive on the scene twice, both times carrying a poster about Grace. The large type on the poster is set in Plantin (Headline Condensed?).
