TIFF 2013: ‘Pioneer’, from ‘Insomnia’ director Eric Skjoldbjaerg, releases a new clip


Norwegian filmmaker Eric Skjoldbjaerg quickly rose to critical acclaim with his 1997 debut feature Insomnia, even catching the eye of Hollywood, who remade the film in 2002 with credit to Skjoldbjaerg. Having made only three more feature length films in the ensuing span, many fans of the filmmaker were excited to learn that he was working on a new feature, this time set in the early 80s. Skjoldbjaerg takes the directing reins once again, as well as co-writing the script with Nikolaj Frobenius, Hans Gunnarsson, Cathinka Nicolaysen, and Kathrine Valen. The cast for the film includes Wes Bentley, Stephen Lang, Aksel Hennie, and Jorgen Langhelle, and a new clip for the movie, which shall be screening at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, has now been released, and can be seen below.
