Gilles Marchand, writer-director of French-Swedish co-production DANS LA FORET (Into the Forest) guests Stockholm this week-end for the first Swedish screening of the film, within the 18th French Film Festival “Franska Filmfestivalen”. Marchand has previously directed two feature films, selected in Cannes, “Who killed Bambi?” and “Black Heaven” and is also an acclaimed scriptwriter, collaborating with directors like Laurent Cantet (“Human Resources”) and Dominik Moll, with whom he co-wrote “Lemming, “Harry, he’s here to help” as well as “Dans la forêt”. The whole film was shot in Sweden, where the action takes place, mainly in the woods of Dalsland. The film stars Jérémie Elkaïm (“Declaration of War”) and two amazing child-actors, Timothé Vom Dorp and Théo Van De Voorde.
Silver Films’ co-founder Olivier Guerpillon is the Swedish co-producer, together with Frida Hallberg for GötaFilm, and the film is distributed in Sweden by Silver Films.
