Cannes: Garage Films Follows Gabriela Pichler on New Project (EXCLUSIVE)

Sweden’s Garage Films is set to produce the untitled sophomore outing of Gabriela Pichler, whose debut, “Eat Sleep Die,” won Venice’s audience award in 2012.

“Eat Sleep Die” was nominated at the British Film Awards, European Film Awards and unspooled in Toronto. The movie won four Guldbagge Awards (Sweden’s top honor).

Jonas Hassen Khemiri, one of Sweden’s most celebrated authors, is writing the film – whose plot is under wraps – with Pichler.

“This project started with a shared interest in the link between images and power structures. We look at the camera as a weapon – perhaps with limited battery life but with tons of ammunition,” said Khemiri and Pichler.

Anna-Maria Kantarius, who is producing the movie for Garage Films, said the “script-development process is driven by two of the most eager and unique Swedish voices of our generation when it comes to film and literature.”

Khemiri’s novels have been translated into more than 15 languages and his plays have been performed by over 50 international companies. Khemiri won the Village Voice Obie Award for his first play, “Invasion!,” which premiered in New York in 2011.

Lensing will take place during the second half of this year in Sweden. The Swedish Film Institute, Film i Vast, Creative Media and Media Arena Lindholmen are financing the development.

Also on Garage’s production slate: Lisa Aschan’s “White People,” which will open in Sweden late September.
