“Boy from Heaven” won Best Screenplay in Festival de Cannes and is the Swedish contender in Best International Feature at the Academy Awards. So, how do you launch the film that won price for Best Screenplay? With the screenplay obviously.  

The political thriller is directed by acclaimed filmmaker Tarik Saleh, with Fares Fares and Tawfeen Barhom in leading roles.

“Not only the plot, but the entire story, is often revealed in a trailer. We decided to do the opposite. Motivated by the award for best screenplay in Cannes”, says Carl Laurén, Creative at Forsman & Bodenfors Stockholm.
