MINISODE 9: BORDER INTERVIEW WITH ALI ABBASI

We have another minisode! Producer Jay spoke with director of new film Border, Ali Abbasi.

About Border: customs officer Tina is known for her extraordinary sense of smell. It’s almost as if she can sniff out the guilt on anyone hiding something. But when Vore, a suspicious-looking man, walks past her, her abilities are challenged for the first time ever. Tina can sense Vore is hiding something she can’t identify. Even worse, she feels a strange attraction to him. As Tina develops a special bond with Vore and discovers his true identity, she also realises the truth about herself. Directed by Ali Abbasi and from a script by John Ajvide Lindqvist (Let The Right One In), Border is a thematically rich and deeply strange blend of romantic drama, magical-realist fantasy, and crime thriller and Sweden’s official entry to this year’s Academy Awards. Border is out in UK cinemas on 8 March.
