The Craft of Film: Melancholia (15) + ScreenTalk with Production Designer Jette Lehmann


26 February 2017
Cinema 2
It is meant to be the happiest day of Justineís (Kirsten Dunst) life, but during the course of the lavish society wedding that her well-organised sister Claire (Charlotte Gainsbourg) has staged for her, Justine increasingly succumbs to inexplicable sadness and anxiety leading her to sabotage her sisterís grand scenario.

When the universe stages an even grander spectacle, the sistersí roles are slowly reversed. Von Trierís highly stylised take on modern day depression owes much of its beauty and romantic flair to Jette Lehmannís opulent production design.

We're delighted to be joined by production designer Jette Lehmann for a talk after the film, hosted by Gemma Jackson.
