Having participated at Les Arcs Film Festival's Work-in-Progress event, the new feature, written and directed by the very original Swedish director, focuses on a couple traumatised by a bereavement, who find themselves plunged into a nightmare during a night out camping in the forest... It's worth noting that Koko-di Koko-da has also be nominated for the Dragon Award for Best Nordic Film at the42nd Göteborg Film Festival (25 January to 4 February).
The Stray Dogs sales team will be particularly sought after at Rotterdam, where an additional three titles in its line-up have been selected: The Day I Lost My Shadow [+leggi anche:
