See Norway in the trailer for DOWNSIZING

One of the first films to be supported by the Norwegian Film Institute as part of the international funding scheme has its first teaser trailer.

That film is Downsizing, which is a social satire in which a guy realizes he would have a better life if he were to shrink himself.

Downsizing stars Matt Damon, Laura Dern, Kristen Wiig, and Christoph Waltz.

The Norwegian funding scheme provides a grant on international productions that partially shoot their films in Norway. They receive a percentage of their spending back. You can read about it here.

Otherwise, watch the trailer below and see if you can tell which parts involve Norway.

The other film that went through a similar scheme is The Snowman, which you can view the trailer for here.
