Danish director Gustav Möller has completed principal photography for this feature debut, The Guilty.
The film, which stars Jakob Cedergren, was awarded at the Nordisk Film & TV Fond’s Nordic Talents in 2015. The film is shot in real time, in one location, with one character, during the night, and most of the film takes place in a box.
The Guilty follows Jakob Cedergren as police officer Asger Holm, who answers an emergency call from a kidnapped woman. The call is interrupted, and the search for the woman and her kidnapper begins – a race against time. Holm’s only tool is his telephone, and he soon realises that he is dealing with a crime that is far bigger than he first thought.
Supported by the Danish Film Institute – New Danish Screen program, The Guilty will be released in Denmark in autumn 2017 by Nordisk Film Distribution.
