Lily Cole (“Star Wars: The Last Jedi”), Rebecca Calder (“I Can Destroy You”), Maive Dermody (“The Beast Must Die”) and Katherine Chuck (“Afterlife”) have joined the cast of “Hilma”. An English-language biopic by Hilma of Clint, a revolutionary Swedish artist and feminist pioneer from Las Holstrom.
As previously announced, Lena Olin (“Enemy”) and Tora Holstrom will play Clint at different ages in her life.
Now shooting in Stockholm and Vilnius (the first picture is still shown above), the Swedish director of an emotional project for the movie Hallstrom, “The Cedar House Rules” and “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape”. It explores the mysterious life of Clint, whose obsolete art was largely unknown for decades. Clint eventually navigated through a male-dominated artistic scene to become one of the first abstract artists in the Western world.
“Hilma” NENT Studios is producing Helena Danielson as the producer and Josephine Zapata Janet as the executive producer. The film will premiere on Viplay in late 2022, under a new order from the streaming company to produce two major English-language films each year.
Cole, Calder, Dermody and Chuck will play the four women who surrounded Clint and formed with him a group called “The Five” that explored art, spiritualism and sexuality. This sorority greatly influenced Clint in his art and is believed to have helped him achieve “painting for the temple”.
“I am delighted to be working on‘ Hilma ’, which tells the story of the world’s first abstract painter and the leading group of women with whom Hilma built her work,” Cole said.
Cole said the women who were part of “The Five” were “pushing against all boundaries of their time, exploring new concepts of spirituality, sexuality, gender and ultimately art.”
“The art that Hilma created as a result of their collaboration has never been created before and sets the artistic agenda for the next century,” Cole said, adding that he has long admired Holstrom and wished “Gilbert Eats Grapes” his “all-time favorite film.” As.
Speaking about the project, Holstrom said earlier that he was inspired to make the film about Clint’s life because he overcame many obstacles.
