Koko-di Koko-da

Sweden’s Johannes Nyholm returns with his highly anticipated sophomore film Koko-di Kojo-da, which the director produced alongside co-producer Maria Moller Christofferson. His cast consists of Leif Edlund, Peter Belli, Ylva Gallon and Katatina Jakobson. John Lundborg (from Nyholm’s 2016 debut The Giant) and Tobias Höiem-Flyckt serve as cinematographers. Nyholm’s celebrated debut The Giant premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and scooped up an award out of San Sebastian. He had three straight short films selected for the Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes, including a drunken baby in Las Palmas – which was selected for Sundance as well.

Gist: Described as a slapstick horror film, a couple reeling from the loss of their daughter take a trip into the woods to heal their relationship only to find a nightmare waiting for them in the form of a macabre variety artist and his sinister entourage.

Release Date/Prediction: Nyholm will compete in the World Cinema Dramatic comp at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.
