The Swedish director Lisa Langseth is shooting her next film in Bavaria: The drama Euphoria is the first project of Oscar®-winner Alicia Vikander’s newly founded production company. The story is about two estranged sisters, who, in the face of death, travel to a magical place in the mountains. FFF Bayern is supporting the project within the framework of the special program for international co-productions and digital image design with 750,000 euros.
The two sisters Emily and Ines embark on a journey. The two couldn’t be more different: Emily nursed their mother until the very end, while Ines was always only concerned with her own life. The time has come for an emotional settlement – and it’s a matter of life and death.
Euphoria is a co-production between B-Reel Features Film Stockholm, Vikarious Production Ltd. London and Dancing Camel Films Munich, in cooperation with Wild Bunch Germany and Dorian Media Limited. Executive producers are, among others, Patrik Andersson (B-Reel) and Christine Ruppert (Dancing Camel Films). Both producers are known for spectacular European cinema: the Munich-based producer Christine Ruppert has produced, among other projects, Ulrich Seidl’s trilogy Paradise: Faith/Love/Hope and Last King of Scotland and the Swedish production company B-Reel Features has produced Lone Scherfig’s A Serious Game. FFF Bayern is supporting Euphoria with 750,000 euros.
The Swedish director Lisa Langseth (Hotell, Pure), who also wrote the screenplay, is directing. The two sisters will be played by Oscar®-winner Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl) and Eva Green (Casino Royale, The Dreamers).
Shooting will take place entirely in Bavaria. Planned locations are Munich and surroundings, the Allgäu region and the Bavarian Forest. Shooting is planned to begin in the first week of August.
