THEA HVISTENDAHL DEBUT FEATURE FILM «HANDLING THE UNDEAD»
HANDLING THE UNDEAD is Einar Film director Thea Hvistendahl’s first feature film. Thea has earlier made a hybrid music video / feature film Adjø Montebello (2017), short films Satan’s Children (2019), Cramps (2020), and more award-winning music videos. John Avjide Lindqvist is the writer behind the novel HANDLING THE UNDEAD (2005) and has written the screenplay for the film.
HANDLING THE UNDEAD is a magical love story about accepting what we can’t control. The feature reflects life, death, human relation, and nature: genre and art-house horror.
Cast: Renate Reinsve of Anders Danielsen Lie, supporting cast Bjørn Sundqvist, Bente Børsum, and Bahars Pars.
- Anders has been a part of this project since 2019, and when we saw Renate’s audition a year ago, there was no doubt she was the right “Anna,” Thea Hvistendahl tells Variety.
The film is produced by Einar Film Drama and producers Kristin Emblem and Guri Neby.
