We are proud to announce that Hlynur Pálmason’s newest feature GODLAND will have its World Premiere in Un Certain Regard Competition in Cannes.
Godland is set in the late 19th century, and tells a story of a young Danish priest who travels to a remote part of Iceland to build a church and photograph its people. But the deeper he goes into the unforgiving landscape, the more he strays from his purpose, the mission and morality.
The film is produced by Snowglobe (DK) in collaboration with Join Motion Pictures (IS) and in co-production with Maneki Films (FR), Film I Väst & Garagefilm International (SE), with support from DFI, IFC, CMC, SFI, NFTF, Creative Europe MEDIA, Hornafjörður Municipality, Sass, DR, Rúv, Sena and Scanbox.
Producers are Katrin Pors, Anton Máni Svansson, Eva Jakobsen and Mikkel Jersin and co-producers Didar Domehri, Mimmi Spång, Anthony Muir, Peter Possne and Guðmundur Arnar Guðmundsson.
Hlynur Pálmason is working again with his regular collaborators that include his producers and sales, DOP Maria von Hausswolff, editor Julius Krebs Damsbo and actors: Elliott Crosset Hove (“Winter Brothers”), Ingvar Sigurðsson (“A White, White Day”), Vic Carmen Sonne (“Winter Brothers”) and Ída Mekkín Hlynsdóttir (“A White, White Day”, “NEST”) bringing us a completely new story and set up. New cast members include Jacob Hauberg Lohmann, Waage Sandø and Hilmar Guðjónsson.
Snowglobe’s credits include “Birds of Passage” by Ciro Guerra and Cristina Gallego, “Monos” by Alejandro Landes, “The Worst Person in the World” by Joachim Trier, “The Innocents” by Eskil Vogt and “A Chiara” by Jonas Carpignano.
