2017 AFI Fest Preview: 10 Films and Filmmakers From This Year’s Line-Up You Should Track Down

Thelma

Though he started out in the skate scene in Scandinavia, Joachim Trier has ascended the ranks as one of the the best filmmakers in Europe, with heartbreaking works like Oslo, August 31st, Reprise, and his first English-language film, Louder Than Bombs. His work has retained a fairly small scale, minimalist in its aesthetic approach, but his new film, Thelma, takes all the techniques he’s honed over his career, particularly  with regard to the emotional potency of his stories and characters, and grafts them onto a story of supernatural, kinetic power and queer desire. “It is a film about agency and power and gender and sexuality, and it is also a damn entertaining ride to boot,” declares Kneedler.
