, and aided by the participation of Mikael Persbrandt and Trine Dyrholm, the Swedish artist promises to examine masculine and feminine identities in an entirely new way. Sales for the movie are handled by New Europe Film Sales. “With more than one-third of the directors in the line-up being first-timers and 80% of the helmers in our new Discovery section being female, there is no doubt that an old and well-worn era is on the verge of rapid change, and is being replaced by new names ready to be discovered. This year, the festival has a ratio of 39% female directors on board, a record-breaking figure,” festival director Git Scheynius told Cineuropa.

The two-time Oscar-winning director will accept the Bronze Horse and participate in a Face2Face conversation. “Farhadi’s masterful and sensitive cinematographic language makes him a visionary filmmaker and elevates him to the rank of international master of cinema,” opines Scheynius. Canadian filmmaker Mary Harron, seen recently at the Venice premiere of her surprising take on the Manson murders, Charlie Says, will be honoured with this year’s Stockholm Lifetime Achievement Award 22 years after her debut, I Shot Andy Warhol, was presented at the festival in 1996, and the recipient of the 2018 Stockholm Achievement Award is actress Gunnel Lindblom, known for her collaborations with Ingmar Bergman. The awards ceremony will take place in conjunction with the screening of Margarethe von Trotta’s documentary Searching for Ingmar Bergman [+lire aussi :
