THRILLER / 120 MIN

THE PERFECT PATIENT is the captivating story about the biggest legal scandal in Swedish history, the story about the reporter who questioned an entire legal system. Hannes Råstam was dedicated to proving the innocence of Thomas Quick and unmask the legal chaos which sentenced Quick to a life in psychiatric prison. However, no one was interested in exonerating and freeing the worst serial killer in Sweden, a cannibalistic rapist who had been sentenced for eight murders and confessed to another twenty-five. This tale lays out a puzzle for audiences to put together as the incredible story of the Thomas Quick case is laid bare, piece by piec

It also shows how Daniel’s parents deal with the fear that they maynever again see their son alive as they conduct nerve-racking ransom negotiations with Islamic State.

DRAMA / 110 MIN

There's a theory that we should be born with a share of alcohol in our blood. That modest intoxication opens our minds to the world around us, diminishing our problems and increasing our creativity. Heartened by that theory, Martin and three of his friends, all tired high school teachers, embark on an experiment to uphold a constant level of intoxication throughout the workday. If Churchill won WW2 in a heavy daze of alcohol, who knows what a few drops might do for them and their students? Initial results are positive and the teachers' little project is elevated to a genuine academic study gathering results Both their classes and their results continue to improve, and the group feels alive again! As the units are knocked back, the experiment progresses for some and derails for others. It grows increasingly clear that while alcohol may have fueled great results in world history, some bold acts carry consequences.

DRAMA / APPROX. 93 MIN

Alice hasn’t seen her two children in months. After a recent and difficult divorce, her ex-husband keeps them from seeing her, awaiting the final custody verdict in Northern Sweden. When her son calls her in the middle of the night weeping helplessly, Alice takes action. She travels on the night train to the North and in a last desperate attempt to win them over, she abducts the children and venture on an illicit charter trip to the Canary Islands. With the idea that the distance between the frozen Northern Sweden and The Canaries could buy her just enough time to reconnect with her children and possibly change the verdict on the custody case. But before she knows it, she is wanted for kidnapping, and both the authorities and her ex-husband are chasing after her.

SUSPENSE DRAMA / 90 MIN

A few days after Christmas, Swedish/Norwegian half-sisters, Ida and Tuva, set out on a winter dive in a remote part of the Norwegian coastline. Towards the end of the dive, a rockslide traps Tuva under water. As Ida surfaces to call for help, she discovers that the rockslide has struck above water as well, burying their equipment, phones and car keys... they are completely cut off from any chance of outside rescue. As the frantic race for survival unfolds, Ida is put to the ultimate test of character and forcefulness. During Ida's fight to save Tuva, a fractured sisterhood is exposed, and when all seems lost, the stakes rise beyond simple survival.

DISASTER MOVIE / 105 MIN

When a tank truck collides in a tunnel in the ice-cold Norwegian mountains, families, teenagers and tourists on their way home for Christmas are brutally trapped in the darkness. A blizzard is raging outside and the first responders struggle to access the scene of the accident. Time is of the essence, and when the wrecked tanker suddenly catches fire, the situation escalates.
