Christoffer Boe—Everything Will Be Fine
Synopsis: A writer-director known for becoming obsessed with his own stories, Jacob Falk stumbles upon photographs of prisoners of war being tortured by Danish soldiers. Suspecting a political conspiracy, Falk falls into a frenetic chase to reveal the mystery behind the photos which leads him to discover a truth more disturbing than he imagined ...
Christoffer Boe is already a Cannes laureate having received the Camera d'Or for "Reconstruction." His fourth film "Everything Will Be Fine" exhibits a new phase in the director's continuing investigation of the creative process and the importance of stories in giving us a sense of control over life. Indeed, as Boe says, "The last great taboo in our highly individualistic lives is that we don't have absolute control of our own lives".
Scripted by Boe, "Everything Will Be Fine" is produced by Tine Grew Pfeiffer for Alphaville Pictures Copenhagen. Sales are handled by The Match Factory.
Christian Rank—Producer on the Move
For the 11th year running Producer on the Move—the networking and promotional platform for Europe's brightest new producers, an initiative of European Film Promotion (EFP)—will be present at the Cannes Film Market.
Christian Rank is this year's Danish Producer on the Move. Graduate of the National Film School in 2005, Rank, since 2008, has found his niche at Miso Film. While his heart beats for American indie films and quirky experiments, he also appreciates working on the broad Scandinavian crime series.
"I started at Miso Film out of a desire to learn how to produce high-quality films with healthy finances and I'm gaining enormous experience working with big market-oriented projects. It gives you an insight that's valuable when working with small art films, in terms of financing, market and audience. Merging art and the market is an interesting thing to do," Rank says.
Christian Rank produced, among others, Martin de Thurah's awardwinning short fiction "Young Man Falling" (2007), selected for Semaine de la Critique (Critics' Week), Phie Ambo's "Gambler" (2006), the biopic about Nicolas Winding Refn, and Christian Dyekjær's feature film debut "Moving Up" (2008).
