Hello there,

This week, we're excited to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Oslo, August 31st, directed by Norwegian filmmaker Joachim Trier. We named Oslo, August 31st the best film of the 2010s and the lead performance from actor Anders Danielsen Lie as one of the best performances of the 2010s.

To celebrate, we're publishing a new piece every day this week on the film! These are all excerpts from our forthcoming book! Longer, and even more in-depth versions of the interviews will be in the book.....

Announcing our next ebook....on Joachim Trier!

We're also extremely excited to announce that our next ebook, due out in early 2022, will focus on Joachim Trier's films and filmmaking process.

The book will especially focus on Trier's latest film, The Worst Person in the World, featuring interviews with the whole team behind it, as well as essays. But we'll be going deep on his entire filmography both through interviews and essays. This will be the book to discover Trier's work.

There is a world elsewhere: Exile in Joachim Trier's Oslo, August 31st and Louder Than Bombs

We kicked off the week with Alex's essay on Oslo, August 31st and Trier's subsequente film, Louder Than Bombs, which share themes of suicide, depression, and loneliness. The essay delves into Oslo, August 31st‘s clear cut, fatalistic story of exile, and how that sense of estrangement in Louder than Bombs is much more complex and optimistic.

Designing a journey through Oslo

On Tuesday, we published an interview with the film's production designer, Jørgen Stangebye Larsen, who talked to Orla about crafting a geographically realistic portrait of the city.
