We are proud to announce that Gustav Möller´s debut feature THE GUILTY has won the World Cinema Dramatic Audience Award at Sundance Film Festival 2018.
“After an incredible week with amazing reviews and Magnolia getting on board for the North American distribution, this really tops it off. I am so happy for the talented team behind the film and especially for Gustav as a young up-and-coming director” says Susan Wendt, Director Of International Sales & Marketing.
In THE GUILTY we follow alarm dispatcher and former police officer, Asger Holm, who answers an emergency call from a kidnapped woman. When the call is suddenly disconnected, the search for the woman and her kidnapper begins. With the phone as his only tool, Asger enters a race against time to save the endangered woman. But soon he realizes that he is dealing with a crime that is far bigger than he first thought.
The film stars Jakob Cedergreen (TERRIBLY HAPPY, 2008; SUBMARINO, 2010) in the predominant lead and is, besides being and intense crime thriller, also a radical film experiment that takes place in real time in one location, a local emergency call center.
In THE GUILTY the camera stays with the protagonist Asger throughout the whole film, thereby letting the audience experience everything as he does. Through sound, the film plays with the audiences imagination and allows them to create their own images of the outside world and the escalating kidnapping.
THE GUILTY is produced by Lina Flint for Nordisk Film SPRING in collaboration with Nordisk Film Production A/S with support from The Danish Film Institute, New Danish Screen.
The film will be released locally on June 14th 2018.
