The director and the producer of Cute are the winners of Nordic Talents 2023 Pitch Prize.

Pitched by: Marlene Emilie Lyngstad (director) & Carl Osbæck Adelkilde (producer)
School: The National Film School of Denmark

Logline: Stella's life is structured through repetitive rituals: at work she takes care of dead bodies. At home she takes on the identity of a fox cub owned by her boyfriend, Richard. When Richards health is weakened, her systems are starting to disintegrate.

Graduating film: Norwegian Offspring

This is a bold and innovative take on an important and timely topic. Presented by a director with a distinct voice, she and her team have a genuinely cinematic approach, revealing the hidden realities of both being an object and being objectified in a consumer world where cuteness frequently conceals cruelty.

This is a story we not have seen before and that we are looking forward to watch on the big screen. Congratulations and good luck.
