Danish auteur says he wants to start new film genre called digressionism.
TrustNordisk has issued the following statement concerning Lars von Trier’s new film Nymphomaniac.
“In 2011 Lars von Trier decided to refrain from all public statements and interviews. To this date he has kept his word.
“But his stories are still being told worldwide and Nymphomaniac will be no exception.
“Using a structure known from literature Nymphomaniac consists of chapters, encapsulating both VOLUME I and VOLUME II and during the next eight months, starting from June and like domino pieces counting down to the release, small bites of these chapters will be published exclusively by a community of selected newspapers around the world.
“Each chapter teaser is defined by a headline, a still and a short narrative that playfully unveils the multilayered universe of Nymphomaniac with which Lars von Trier wants to introduce a new film genre: Digressionism.
