ICM was represented by four lucky staff members who got the chance to see and hear new things about the film formerly known as Comrade – Anna, Karo, Majbritt and pseudo-staffer Malene. It was a 30 minute presentation which included a chat with Norwegian director Petter Næss and the Danish producer and co-owner of Zentropa, Peter Aalbæk Jensen as well as three clips from the film.
We can tell you that the film looks very promising and we will see Rupert in a completely different role and setting than we’ve ever seen before.
After the presentation, we had the chance to have a short chat with Petter Næss about the film. He was extremely excited about the whole project – as much as we all are. More about this later – but do stay tuned this coming week. We might have more Into the White related goodies coming to you very soon 😉
Update: Our time in Stockholm is almost over now – but what a trip it has been. Today we had an appointment to meet up with Into the White director Petter Næss at Berns Hotel here in Stockholm – and it ended up being a whole hour of chatting about everything from Rupert, Into the White and the myth that Danish people drink a lot of beer (which of course is not true – at all… 😉 ). We will make sure to get the interview published ASAP – but be patient with us! Transcribing an hour’s worth of talking takes time – but we’ll be as quick as possible.
