Border for the Academy Awards

30 August 2018

Sweden has selected Ali Abbasi’s Cannes winner “Border”, based on a John Ajvide Lindqvist’s as its entry for best foreign-language film at this year’s 91st Academy Awards. The Swedish Film Institute announced the choice Tuesday.

The film was chosen by the seven members of the Swedish Oscar Committee, which was presided over by Anna Serner, CEO of the Swedish Film Institute.

“Border” saw its world premiere in the Un Certain Regard program at this year’s Cannes Film Festival in May, where it went on to win the section’s top prize. It follows a customs officer (Eva Melander), with an extraordinary sense of smell, who develops a strange attraction to a suspect she’s investigating, leading to revelations that call into question her entire existence.
