Una (Recurrence), a supernatural thriller written by Óttar M. Nordfjörd and Marteinn Thorsson and directed by Thorsson, has been awarded a 110 million ISK production grant (approx 1.1 million USD) from The Icelandic Film Centre (film is budgeted at 2.5 million USD/2.2 million EUR). The thriller marks a return for Thorsson to genre filmmaking, his first being the sci-fi One Point O (1.0), which premiered in competition at Sundance, 2004. Una was initially developed by Tenderlee but delegate producing duties are now handled by Gudrun Edda Thorhannesdóttir of DUO productions with Marteinn Thorsson as co-producer (ISL), as well as Gunnar Carlsson of Anagram (SWE) and Christian Riffard of Frozen Frogs (FRA). The Yellow Affair (SWE/FIN) is in charge of global sales (excluding Iceland). Casting and other prep for the genre pic will start in late May.
The project has also been selected for the Focus Asia co-pro market at the Far East film festival in Udine (April 24-27, 2018).
