TrustNordisk has boarded sales for survival drama Breaking Surface, which writer/director Joachim Hedén is shooting now.
Moa Gammel and Madeleine Martin star in the story of Swedish/Norwegian half sisters who go on a winter diving trip in Northern Norway, when they get trapped after a rockslide.
Breaking Surface is shooting at Lites studios in Flanders at the world’s deepest water tank; it is the first film to shoot there.
After Belgium, the film will shoot in Strömstad, Sweden; Lofoten, Norway; and Göteborg, Sweden. It wraps in mid-March.
Julia Gebauer and Jonas Sörensson produce for Sweden’s Way Creative Films with co-producers Film i Väst, SVT, Film i Skåne, Umedia, Filmfond Nord and Screen Flanders.
Nordisk Film will distribute in Scandinavia with the theatrical launch planned for the end of 2019.
Silje Nikoline Glimsdal, sales & project manager at TrustNordisk, said, “We are thrilled to be able to present Breaking Surface in our EFM 2019 line-up. This is a classic race-against-the-clock story set in spectacular underwater surroundings.”
Hedén’s past features are 10.000 Timmar , Framily and New York Waiting.
