Thelma premiere: On the red carpet with Joachim Trier and Eili Harboe
Joachim Trier’s latest film premiered at the BFI London Film Festival and is released in cinemas on 3rd November 2017. Thelma is a deeply moving sci-fi thriller and a meditation on individuality, female sexuality, religion, and the challenges faced by adolescents, combined with stunning cinematography and an affecting performance by Eili Harboe. Thelma moves a little away from the naturalistic movies Trier is known for; however, the familial drama that he understands so well is harnessed within the film, producing an effective piece of cinema that leaves audiences thinking about their own lives and the reasons behind the decisions we all choose to make.
We spoke to Joachim Trier on what the movie is about and its supernatural elements, and his future projects.
Eili Harboe told us about what drew her to making the film and the challenges of her role.
