LevelK at IDFA
As IDFA is around the corner, we're highlighting our strong documentaries of 2020.
Our line up include our thrilling and provocative documentary A SONG CALLED HATE, about the performance art group Hatari, who made headlines at last year’s Eurovision Song Contest. First time director Anna Hildur follows the group on their journey from Reykjavik to Tel Aviv and Palestine. The film has a strong executive producing team onboard in Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, the directors behind the critically acclaimed Nick Cave starring documentary (20,000 Days on Earth), which won two awards at Sundance and was BAFTA nominated. The film is produced for Tattarrattat. Screener is available.
The line up also includes our true crime documentary series THE SCANDINAVIAN STAR. In six episodes, SCANDINAVIAN STAR delves into one of the largest unsolved crimes in recent Scandinavian history: The catastrophic fire on board the car and passenger ferry MS Scandinavian Star in 1990, in which 159 people were killed. Each of the six episodes will last 60 minutes, using archive material, new interviews and reconstructions in order to address the unanswered questions surrounding the incident. SCANDINAVIAN STAR is written by the experienced screenwriter Nikolaj Scherfig (The Bridge, Unit One) alongside director Mikala Krogh (A Year of Hope) and journalist Lars Halskov. The series is produced by Sigrid Dyekjær and Thomas Heinesen for Nordisk Film Production. Screener is available.
Lastly our impactful and multi award-winning ASWANG is directed by first time feature director and Berlinale Talents alumna Alyx Ayn Arumpac. When Rodrigo Duterte is voted president of the Philippines, he sets in motion a machinery of death to execute suspected drug peddlers, users, and small-time criminals. ASWANG follows people whose fates entwine with the growing violence during two years of killings in Manila. The film is produced by Armi Rae Cacanindin and Alyx Ayn Arumpa for CINEMATOGRAFICA. Screener is available.
Other interesting popular documentary titles we are representing this year are our high profiled and award-winning PHOTOGRAPHER OF WAR, our body-positivistic FAT FRONT, the poetic REDISCOVERY, the inspiring story of SEPIDEH, the important film DRONE and the spectacular MOTLEY'S LAW.
