    Lübeck, Oct. 11, 2019. “The Children’s and Youth films at the 61st Nordische Filmtage Lübeck display are marked by the topicality of their subject matter. Serious topics have been made into innovative and entertaining movies, both in the live-action and in the animated films for young people”, says Franziska Kremser-Klinkertz, the section curator. This year’s programme comprises a total of 37 films, 18 features and 19 short films. As in every year, the section includes numerous premieres, underscoring the NFL’s great significance as a forum for Nordic and Baltic films for the international children’s and youth film industry.

    Opening night – The 61st Nordische Filmtage Lübeck shows “Swoon”

    On October 29, 2019, the 61st Nordische Filmtage Lübeck will open with the German premiere of the Swedish film “Swoon” (orig: Eld och Lågor, 2019) directed by Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein. With “Swoon”, the directors of “Midnight Sun” (2016) and co-authors of the internationally acclaimed series “Bron/Broen” (“The Bridge”) present a visually spectacular, romantic, and entertaining film with magical musical elements and surprising special effects. “Swoon” takes us back to 1940s Stockholm, telling a touching Romeo and Juliet story, based on real events, set in the milieu of a fun fair. The film features a brilliant cast headed by newcomers Frida Gustavsson and Albin Grenholm in the top roles. Additional roles are played by Pernilla August and Robert Gustafsson (of “The 101-Year-Old Man Who Skipped Out on the Bill and Disappeared”). The directors and additional guests will attend the screening. The film was produced by Kristina Åberg (Atmo AB, Sweden), World sales are handled by TrustNordisk ApS. More
