The Danish production company Snowglobe has announced its first film.
Titled Sticks and Stones (Brakland), the film will shoot in July and August on the southern Danish island of Langeland and Funen.
The film is directed by Martin Skovbjerg and is about a teenage boy from Copenhagen who moves to a provincial area, where he is an outsider. It changes when he meets the local 15-year-old alpha male and the pair challenge each other in transgressive actions. When one boy’s family is blamed for a local scandal, their friendship is threatened.
Jonas Bjerril and Vilmer Trier Brøgger will star.
Theatrical distributors include Denmark’s Reel Pictures, Iceland’s Bio Paradis and Norway´s Mer Film.
The script is based on an original story by writer Christian Gamst Miller-Harris (Follow The Money, Oscar-winning short Helium).
The Danish Film Institute and regional fund FilmFyn are backing. The project was pitched at Rotterdam’s CineMart 2017.
Snowglobe has more Danish features in the pipeline including another feature debut, Josefine Kirkeskov’s Lifeboat.
