STOCKHOLM is based on the absurd but true story of a 1973 bank heist and hostage crisis documented in the 1974 New Yorker article “The Bank Drama” by Daniel Lang. The film follows Lars Nystrom, (Ethan Hawke) who dons a disguise to raid a central Stockholm bank. He then takes hostages in order to spring his pal Gunnar (Mark Strong) from prison. One of the hostages includes Bianca (Noomi Rapace), a wife and mother of two. Negotiations with detectives hits a wall when (at the request of the Prime Minister) the police refuse to let Lars leave in a getaway car with the hostages. As hours turn into days, Lars alternates between threatening the hostages and making them feel comfortable and secure. The hostages develop an uneasy relationship with their captor, which is particularly complex for Bianca, who develops a strong bond with Lars as she witnesses his caring nature. This connection gave rise to the psychological phenomenon known as “Stockholm syndrome”.

The Impossible Dream recalls a 10-year journey that brought the world’s first fully painted feature film to the cinema screen. From humble beginnings in a bedroom in an industrial Polish town of Lódz, an idea for a 7-minute short film that would tell the story of Vincent van Gogh through his paintings was conceived. The potential for a truly groundbreaking yet completely unseen project seemed like a huge risk, but when in the hands of two passionate filmmakers willing to risk everything to make their impossible dream come true, nothing could stand in their way.
Oil-painted animation Loving Vincent depicts a young man as he travels to the last hometown of painter Vincent van Gogh to deliver the troubled artist’s final letter and ends up investigating the Van Gogh’s final days.
