UK Premiere of Helmer Hardcore
Jakob Weis was in town for the UK premiere of Helmer Hardcore last week. He stuck around after the show for a little chat led by Dr Claire Thomson, a senior lecturer in Scandinavian Film at University College London. Dr Thomson is a huge fan of Danish dogma and tried to entice Jakob Weis into breaking his vow of silence on his project, Von Trier, Persona Non Grata, an unauthorised biography on the controversial Danish filmmaker. Jakob stood firm though, instead choosing to keep the attention on Helmer Hardcore, a project very close to his heart and in keeping with his works on ‘the modern Danish man.’ Watch this space for more details!
