Swedish Feature Shot in 5 Hours to Premiere in Warsaw

Swedish-based director Drazen Kuljanin’s first feature film How to Stop a Wedding is set to make its premiere at the Warsaw Film Festival this autumn. The film was shot in January 2014 during a train ride between Malmo and Stockholm, and the entire filming process was during that five hour long trip. How to Stop a Wedding is about two people who end up in the same passenger car compartment, on their way to the same wedding, which they both want to stop.

The Warsaw Film Festival celebrates its 30th anniversary between the 10th and 19th of October, and will be part of the competition. Polish press has labeled the film ‘one of the most interesting films of the year.’
