Container in January
Metrodome have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Container for 29th January 2007 priced at £19.99. Described by Lukas Moodysson as “a film about the little darling that lives inside all of us”, Container is poetic, experimental and different, as it follows a reflective path into the life of an overweight Swedish man and the slim Asian woman who may be the embodiment of his inner girl. Starring Peter Lorentzon and Mariha Aberg and featuring the voice of American actress, Jena Malone (Donnie Darko, Pride and Prejudice).
Inside The Container Crypt
On 27th October Lukas Moodysson’s Container opened at the ICA on Pall Mall, London alongside an ambitious and stylised art installation entitled ‘The Container Crypt: Inside The Mind Of Lukas Moodysson’. The installation was designed by Lukas, inspired by a combination of the film itself and the inner workings of the mind of one of cinema’s most enigmatic directors. It proved a big hit with very high attendance figures during its two week run.
This 27-minute film documents the assembly of Lukas’ installation, and is inter-cut with Lukas’ insightful introduction of Container at its London Film Festival screening and UK premiere. But by far the most fascinating footage of this compelling short documentary is when Lukas’ recently finished work receives a visit from three unconventional art critics in the form of a psychic, a psychoanalyst and a priest. What follows provides a unique insight into the most original and experimental work of Lukas’ career so far.
Featuring footage of Lukas Moodysson and specially commissioned for this DVD release.
