Sneak Preview followed by Q&A with Joachim Trier
Norwegian filmmaker Joachim Trier, who first came to international prominence with Reprise (2006) and Oslo, August 31st (2011), has established himself as a peerless director of actors with the empathy to sensitively explore states of emotional turmoil. His latest, Thelma, offers ample evidence of those talents while also finding Trier striking off in a very new direction, exploring aspects of horror-fantasy in an absorbing, strikingly realized coming-of-age story touched by gothic romance and anchored by breakout performances from Eili Harboe and Kaya Wilkins.
