No Way She Will Make A Film without Me
INTERVIEW. Katja Adomeit loves the creative side of producing and never tires of finding new ideas, new partnerships and new production concepts to make films that really matter, whether they are made in Afghanistan, New Zealand, South Dakota, Ukraine, Tajikistan, Siberia, Bhutan, Kazachstan or Denmark. The result of her collaboration with Afghan director Shahrbanoo Sadat, "Wolf and Sheep," is selected for Directors' Fortnight in Cannes.
The Obsession With Beauty

INTERVIEW. "Beauty isn't everything, it's the only thing," states a character in Nicolas Winding Refn's "The Neon Demon," following an aspiring model in Los Angeles, where she's up against mountain lions as well as jealous competitors. The film, selected for Cannes Competition, is Refn's first horror film and first film with female protagonists.

An Outsider's Observations

INTERVIEW. Afghan director Shahrbanoo Sadat's first feature, Danish-produced "Wolf and Sheep," was inspired by her feeling of being an outsider during her childhood in a small isolated village in Central Afghanistan. Her goal was to tell a story that doesn't revolve around war, the election, or other political issues dominating the media, but depicts Afghan everyday life as she knows it. The film is selected for Directors' Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival.

Virtual Reality Mother-Daughter Drama

Johan Knattrup Jensen and Mads Damsbo have been invited to join Cannes' NEXT programme with "Ewa," a virtual reality film about a girl’s life from birth to adulthood providing a cinematic experience of being another person.
