Festival will also screen Miss Julie (pictured).
Actres and director Liv Ullmann will receive the Goteborg Film Festival’s Nordic Honorary Dragon Award.
She will visit Goteborg during the festival and also screen her latest film Miss Julie.
Norway is also Goteborg’s country in focus this year.
“The Norwegian focus will form a broad panorama of the Nordic film country that has perhaps taken the greatest step forward in recent years, both with regards to artistry and reaching audiences. Festivalgoers will be able to acquaint themselves with everything from weight-conscious researchers and blind authors to murderous snow-plowers and car-crazy speedfreaks. I’ll even wager that there will be more powerful Norwegian films to come,” says Jonas Holmberg, artistic director at Göteborg Film Festival.
“Liv Ullmann is one of the most prominent people in Norwegian film history, both as an actor and a director. Her acuity and sensitivity have left profound impressions on film-lovers across the world. In Miss Julie, she approaches Strindberg with precisely the intelligence and elegance that make her a perfect recipient of the Nordic Honorary Dragon Award.”
