Jätten / The Giant by Johannes Nyholm

I made the Costume Design for this Feature Film and also the make up, except for the main character Rikard’s mask.

Rikard is an autistic and severely deformed man who was separated from his mother at birth. Thirty years later he is convinced that he will get her back if only he wins the Scandinavian Championship of pétanque. He tries to do the impossible. His fragile physique and a harsh judging environment are not going to stop him. Plus there is a 200 foot giant on his side.
