Troell's film premieres in Montreal
Swedish film director Jan Troell (famous mostly for his films "The Emigrants" and "The New Land") will have his new film "Dom över död man” (Doom over a dead man) premiere at the Montreal World Film Festival, which will take place in August/September. The news was delivered during a press conference arranged by the festival. “I was very happy when being told the film was coming to Montreal,” says Troell. “It’s like a confirmation that the film has a chance to reach an audience. The people who picked the film are the first outsiders to have seen it, and they obviously liked it.” “Dom över död man” is a film about Torgny Segerstedt, editor-in-chief for Göteborgs Handels- och sjöfartstidning during WW2, and his fight against the Nazi regime in Germany.
