The Nordic Council Film Prize 2016 is awarded to “Louder Than Bombs” from Norway by Joachim Trier (director and screenwriter), Eskil Vogt (screenwriter), and Thomas Robsahm (producer) from Motlys.

“Louder Than Bombs” from Norway has won the Nordic Council Film Prize. The winner has just been announced at the Nordic Council prize award ceremony at the DR Concert Hall in Copenhagen. 

The Adjudication Committee wrote:

“Louder Than Bombs” is a highly distinctive, inventive, and visionary film about a family being torn apart in the years following the death of the mother and wife.

Joachim Trier and his team embark on an artistic enterprise that takes storytelling to a new level. Its complexity of structure, its emotional probing, and its ability to dismember clichés should ensure its place in the curriculum of film schools around the world.
