Scandinavian sales company TrustNordisk has picked up international sales rights to sci-fi-thriller Frost.
Icelandic film-maker Reynir Lyngdal has directed the film which is currently in production and is shot on a glacier in the Icelandic highlands.
The film, about a young couple who arrive at a glacier drilling camp only to find it mysteriously abandoned, was presented as a work in progress at the Nordic Film Market in Gothenburg last week.
Ingvar Thordarson and Julius Kemp are producing for Kisi Production, with Markus Selin and Jukka Helle (Solar Films) and Karla Stojáková (Axman Production) co producing. It has backing from the Icelandic Film Centre.
Domestic distribution is handled by SAMFilm.
Rikke Ennis, CEO at TrustNordisk, states “Frost is one of the most spectacular projects I have heard of for a long time. A sci-fi-thriller set in stunning surroundings such as a glacier. I can’t think of better selling points than that, and we are very proud to be representing this project.”
