We are very proud that our two series TRANSPORT and THE DARK HEART have been selected to screen at this year’s Series Mania Festival. TRANSPORT will screen in the International Competition and THE DARK HEART will screen in the International Panorama section.
TRANSPORT will celebrate its international premiere at the festival, while THE DARK HEART world premiered earlier this year in the Indie Episodic section at Sundance Film Festival.
A journalist wants to trace a microchip found in baby food. Her inquiries lead her to the illicit horse trade in Europe. A bank manager makes a mistake. When she fails to cover it up, she falls prey to something bigger. A border control veterinarian goes missing. An insurance investigator wants to know what happened. Transport is a story about ordinary people who all have their skin in the game.
Synopsis THE DARK HEART
Sanna (21) and Marcus (18) are deeply in love. They’ve grown up on two nearby farms in Eketorp, in southern Sweden. While Sanna’s father Bengt is a powerful figure in the small village, a millionaire and landowner, Marcus’ family is penniless. In the summer of 2012, Bengt disappears without a trace, the day after Sanna has been given an ultimatum – leave Marcus, or lose her inheritance. Two years later, the police have little to go on with their investigation and the organization Missing People is contacted. Private investigator Tanja (29) gets obsessed with the case and to solve it, Tanja starts seeing Marcus, risking her own life.
The festival takes place from March 22nd – 24th 2022.
