Top 150 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2020: #65. Diorama – Tuva Novotny


Swedish actress turned director Tuva Novotny is likely to have her third consecutive feature in 2020 with Diorama, which is being produced by Nordisk Film. Cast and crew have not yet been announced on the film. Having balanced an impressive number of projects in front of and behind the camera over the past several years, Novtony’s 2018 debut Blindspot, shot in real-time in one take, competed in San Sebastian, taking home Best Actress for Novotny and Pia Tjelta. Her 2019 feature Britt-Marie Was Here was released this past September courtesy of Cohen Media Group and she’s starred in a number of recent notable features, including Borg vs. McEnroe (2017), Annihilation (2018) and Jonas Alexander Arnby’s Suicide Tourist (2019).

Gist: Novotny’s latest aims to take a look at the social conventions which have allowed for humans to believe monogamy is actually conducive to our nature. The project has been described as a parallel story including a couple and the course of their relationship as well as the behavior of animals.

Release Date/Prediction: News of the project was announced in August 2019, and Novotny was in the midst of prepping the film in September, with principal photography slated for late 2019. If the film follows its projected production, Novotny looks to be a contender for the fall festival circuit, perhaps in TIFF’s Platform program.
