1188 Volvo Scandinavian Film Festival 2017

More than just Noir, the Volvo Scandinavian Film Festival returns to Cinema Paradiso from July 20 to Aug 2.
The Volvo Scandinavian Film Festival (SCA17) is pleased to announce a  specially curated program of films and events allowing audiences to delve into the iconic style of Nordic cinema from Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland and Finland.

2017 Volvo Scandinavian Film Festival highlights include:

Norway’s official selection at the 2017 Academy Awards, THE KING'S CHOICE based on extraordinary true events,  set during a pivotal moment in World War II. Highly acclaimed Norwegian director, author and screenwriter, Sara Johnsen brings us ROSEMARI, a story about a young couple's unrestrained love, an eccentric ex-boxer with a taste for erotica, and a mother covering up her life's biggest secret. From Norway, HANDLE WITH CARE by Arild Andresen is a delicate father and son journey.   From child prodigy to chess genius, MAGNUS is a lively documentary that explores how chess virtuoso Magnus Carlsen, the 26-year-old Norwegian, rose to become the World Chess Champion. 
Get ready for the latest instalment of Denmark's smash-hit Nordic noir series A CONSPIRACY OF FAITH, described by the Los Angeles Times as “the darkest and most gripping screen adaptation of the Jussi Adler-Olsen novels to date”. Shot entirely on location in Copenhagen, IN THE BLOOD follows a group of young men through a warm, sunny summer at a defining moment in their lives.  A part of the tenth-grade curriculum at Danish high schools, ONE-TWO-THREE GO! is this year’s winner of the Public Prize at the Robert Awards (the Danish Oscars) - young love is put to the test in unimaginable circumstances in this intimate, coming-of-age story.  Director and script writer Charlotte Sieling returns with THE MAN starring Jakob Oftebro and Søren Malling; a world-famous artist is suddenly forced to confront his past when the son he never knew, who is a renowned graffiti artist, shows up at his studio.
FIPRESCI prize winner TOM OF FINLAND,a biographical drama the Finnish homoerotic artist and hugely influential figure in gay culture, whose work is showcased in prestigious galleries, including MOMA in New York.
The winner of 26 international awards HEARTSTONE is an emotionally driven, beautifully crafted film that follows the lives of a group of youths as they explore sexuality and maturity over a summer in a small Icelandic village.   Another tender coming-of-age story is Finnish drama LITTLE WING. Shot in a realist style, the story centres on the resourceful Varpu as she struggles between fitting in with her friends and her family.  
 
The full-line up of films and tickets will be released mid-June, stay tuned to this page for updates.
