TrustNordisk has closed deals on Amanda Kernell’s Charter for Benelux (September Films) and Lithuania (Scanorama).

The film had its world premiere in Sundance’s World Cinema Dramatic Competition and also played in the Nordic competition at Goteborg.

The second feature from Sami Blood director Kernell is about a Swedish mother’s desperate move to abduct her own children on a trip to the Canary Islands because she fears she will lose custody of them.

Ane Dahl Torp (1001 Grams) and Sverrir Gudnason (Borg Vs McEnroe) star alongside newcomers Tintin Poggats Sarri and Troy Lundkvist.

Kernell reunites with many of the same team from her acclaimed debut Sami Blood: producer Lars G. Lindström, DoP Sophia Olsson, editor Anders Skov, composer Kristian Eidnes Selin Andersen and sound designers Brian Dyrby and Mira Falk.

TrustNordisk has a market screening of the film here at EFM tomorrow (Friday).

Charter is produced by Nordisk Film Production Sverige in co-production with Nordisk Film Production in Denmark, Nordisk Film Production in Norway, SVT and Filmpool Nord in collaboration with Orange Valley Canarias with support from Swedish Film Institute, Danish Film Institute, Norwegian Film Institute, Eurimages, Nordisk Film & TV Fond, Creative Europe program – Media of the European Union and Film i Västerbotten.
