Swedish Film Institute Gives Coin To ‘You Disappear,’ ‘Ravens,’ ‘The Greatest’

The Swedish Film Institute is set give coin to Michael Nyqvist starrer “You Disappear,” Jens Assur’s feature debut “Ravens” and Fijona Jonuzi’s “The Greatest.”

A Danish-Swedish drama, “You Disappear” marks Peter Schonau Fog’s follow up to “The Art of Crying.” Produced by Zentropa, “You Disappear” is an adaptation of Christian Jungersen’s bestselling novel. Nyquist plays a defense lawyer fighting for a respected schoolteacher who had been arrested for fraud.
Trine Dyrholm (In a Better World) and Nikolaj Lie Kaas (The Keeper of Lost Causes) also star.

Based on Tomas Bannerhed’s August Prize-winning novel, “Ravens” is a drama set in the 1970’s Swedish countryside. It turns on a farmer who struggles to face demands on modernisation and faces his son’s reluctance to take over the business.

Jonuzi’s “The Greatest” (Den största av dom största) chronicles two weeks in the lives of an actor and a director preparing a one-man show together. With no material at hand to rehears, the pair’s professional relationship gradually becomes a private struggle.

Several short documentaries funding have been granted money: ”The Mahoyo Project” by Moira Ganley and Gustav Nord, ”10 Meter Tower” by Axel Danielsson and Maximilien Van Aertryck, another Plattform production.

Romanian-Swedish short-film helmer Stefan Constantinescu, competing at Stockholm with “The Prologue,” has been granted coin for his next short, “The Shower.” Actress Nanna Blondell, prominent in two works in 1 KM film at Stockholm, is being awarded funding for her directing debut, short “Noni & Elizabeth.”

During Stockholm Film Festival’s Industry Days, which run Nov. 17-19, a special seminar will be hold on the future funding of Swedish film.
