Joachim Trier’s new film selling in Berlin

After the huge success of 2015’s Louder Than Bombs, Joachim Trier‘s new film has proven to be popular several months before its theatrical release.

His upcoming film, titled Thelma, is currently being sold by Paris-based sales company Memento Films. The film has been sold to Italy (Teodora), Benelux (Imagine), Baltics (Scanorama), Portugal (Alambique), Greece (Seven),Turkey (Bir Film), Poland (Gutek), ex-Yugoslavia (MCF Megacom), Hungary (Vertigo), Czech Republic and Slovakia (Aerofilms), Romania (Macondo), Taiwan (Maison Motion) and Japan (Gaga). That means you can expect to see the film in those countries at some point!

The film is a little different from Trier’s usual tales of troubled writers, and his return to the Norwegian language after taking a break to try English with Louder Than Bombs, which screened out of competition at Cannes.  

The film was shot in Oslo last September and is due to be delivered in late spring 2017 (Cannes release, anyone?) and SF Norge is planning a Halloween 2017 release in Norway.
