Danish actress Susanne Juhasz who won the prestigious Bodil Award as best supporting actress for her film debut One Hand Clapping, has landed her first leading role in newcomer Oliver Kanafani's feature directing debut Sten, Saks, Papir (working title).
It is a comedy-drama about the relationship between two very different sisters (Juhasz and Mia Wanting) who are forced to share a flat. They are both looking for Mr. Right, but instead find each other. The film is produced by Soren Juul Petersen's Zeitgeist on a tight Euros 1m budget and shoots on location in FilmByen and around Copenhagen until November 1.
Morten Dragsted wrote the script with director Kanafani while cinematographer Morten Soeborg (Bleeder, Open Hearts) is behind the camera. The film is made without support from the Danish Film Institute as a co-production with Zentropa's Peter Aalbaek Jensen and Sandrew Metronome's Bo Christensen, who both take executive producer credits. Sandrew Metronome distributes the film in Scandinavia, and TV2/Denmark has local TV-rights. Trust Film Sales will handle international sales.
