After the acclaimed Palm d’Or, Golden Globe® and Academy Award®-nominated drama THE HUNT, Thomas Vinterberg is back in Denmark with his next film THE COMMUNE for Zentropa in co-operation with Toolbox Film. Shooting has just begun and will continue for a total of 8 weeks on location in Denmark and in Trollhättan in Sweden.
With a sizable stellar ensemble cast lead by Ulrich Thomsen (IN A BETTER WORLD, 2010; MORTDECAI, 2015), Trine Dyrholm (IN A BETTER WORLD; 2010; A ROYAL AFFAIR, 2012), Fares Fares (ZERO DARK THIRTY, 2012; CHILD 44, 2015) and Lars Ranthe (THE HUNT, 2012) among others, Vinterberg turns his attention towards group dynamics as he tells a story about the clash between personal desires vs. solidarity and tolerance in a commune in the 70’s.
Vinterberg is once again re-teaming with co-writer Tobias Lindholm for THE COMMUNE. Together, Vinterberg and Lindholm also co-wrote two of Vinterberg’s previous films SUBMARINO (2010) and THE HUNT (2012). For the latter they received a European Film Award for Best Screenwriter in 2012.
THE COMMUNE is produced by Sisse Graum Jørgensen and Morten Kaufmann for Zentropa Entertainments19 in co-operation with Toolbox Film, co-produced by Film Väst, Zentropa International Sweden, Topkapi Films and Zentropa International Netherlands with support from Danish Film Institute, DR, Eurimages, Nordisk Film & TV Fond, The Netherlands Film Fund, Swedish Film Institute and the MEDIA programme of the European Union.
