And the Norwegian Academy Award goes to…

Ine Wilmann wins Best Supporting Actress and Pål Sverre Hagen wins Best Actor at the Amanda Awards for their respective performances in WAR SAILOR. Congratulations!

The feature tells the story of how merchant sailors were caught in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean during Germany’s invasion of Norway during WWII and then hijacked into working for the Allied forces - and how it affected the families and life in Norway at the time.

Ine Marie Wilmann stars as Cecilia, and Pål Sverre Hagen stars as Sigbjørn. WAR SAILOR also features Alexandra Gjerpen as Hanna and Henrikke Lund-Olsen as Magdeli.
