Cannes 2014, Un Certain Regard:
the Jury Prize goes to Ruben Östlund’s Force Majeure.
I am the Costume Designer for this feature film. With a lot of credits to Hege Riksfjord Hådell and Sara Pertmann for for helping make the costumes fantastic!!!
“Force Majeure” (“Turist”) highlights behavior that people have seen in others — mostly in conflict areas — think they’ll never resort to, and then have to admit that they have that side to their character.”
It turns on a happy Swedish family — father, mother, two kids — holidaying in the French Alps. An avalanche sparks a spontaneous act of cowardice from the father, who can’t understand why he reacted that way.
