For the second year running, the recipient of the Eurimages Lab Project Award at the Norwegian International Film Festival in Haugesund (17-23 August) was Norwegian. Director Guro Brusgaard, a member of the Alternativet production collective, executed an enticing presentation of her forthcoming first feature, Him, a topical take on gender dynamics. Him centres on three different males between the ages of 11 and 60 and unfolds during a single day in Oslo. “Witty, intelligent and compassionate” was the verdict of the jury, consisting of Christin Berg, Nordisk Film Kino, Norway; Swedish Film Institute veteran Kristina Börjeson; Haifa industry curator Rut Lev Ari, Israel; and Berlinale Scandinavian film expert Stephen Locke, Germany.

The suitably impressed jury also awarded an Honourable Mention to Swedish director Ninja Thyberg’s hotly anticipated Pleasure, a uniquely female gaze on the American porn industry, promising “an intriguing cinematic achievement – bold, courageous and out of the box”, as the jury put it. Or, as Thyberg herself confidently stated: “This will be something you’ve never seen before.” A Cannes opening looks likely, not least via main producer Plattform (The Square [+lee también:

by Jon Blåhed delivers a fresh portrayal of northernmost Sweden as a Stockholm girl gives up the big city for a life in Lapland with her boyfriend, only for them to break up on the drive up there; she thus finds herself single and stuck in the middle of seemingly nowhere. NIMBY by Teemu Nikki (Euthanizer [+lee también:

) plays like a proper Finnish Almodóvar flick, as a young woman prepares to come out of the closet and present her Iranian-born girlfriend to her parents, only to find them engaged in an orgy with her godparents, and then run into her Neo-Nazi ex. And with The Good Traitor, Denmark’s Christina Rosendahl has hit the newsflash jackpot with her account of Henrik Kaufmann, the Danish ambassador to the United States who, during World War II, signed a treaty to give the USA a military presence on Greenland. A sturdy lead by Ulrich Thomsen should further improve the odds for this one.

The Nordic Co-Production Market Award went to Norway’s Let the River Flow by Ole Giæver, with production handled by Maria Ekerhovd and Mer Film (which was also behind the winner of the Haugesund Eurimages Lab Project Award of 2018, Burning Man). The Scandinavian Debut Award also went to a Mer Film production – Stepsisters by Emilie Blickfeldt, produced by Ragna Midtgard and praised by the jury for its “beauty horror” qualities.
