If you must ask, Trier is related to Danish director Lars von Trier; his father was sound engineer on Norwegian director Ivo Caprino’s Pinchcliffe Grand Prix, which has sold an estimated 5.5 million tickets in Norway (population: 4.9 million); his grandfather was Norwegian legendary director Erik Løchen.

Scripted with Eskil Vogt, who co-wrote both Oslo, August 31st (2011) and Reprise, Louder Than Bombs is the story of a famous war photographer (Huppert), now dead – after opening a retrospective exhibition of her work her husband (Byrne) and her sons discover an unsettling secret from her past.

Produced by Osnes and Sigve Endresen, for Motlys, the film is co-produced by Nimbus Film (Denmark), Memento Films (France), Majade Films (Germany) and Albert Berger-Ron Yerxa from Boda Fide Productions (US). Memento will handle French distribution and international sales, marketing the project at Cannes.
