Norwegian director Hans Petter Moland’s feature, Out Stealing Horses (Ut og stjæle hester), has been selected for the main competition at the 69th Berlin International Film Festival (February 7-17, 2019), where it will have its world premiere.
It is written and directed by Moland, adapted from Per Petterson’s novel of the same name. Set in the winter of 1999 as New Year’s Eve approaches, the story follows 67-year-old Trond, who discovers a neighbour who he knew back in 1948. This meeting causes him to look back at that time in his life, including his father’s disappearance. Stellan Skarsgård plays the lead role, with Danica Curcic, Pål Sverre Hagen and Anders Baasmo Christiansen also in the cast. Watch the trailer here.
