Description

Director Magnus Von Horn’s debut feature THE HERE AFTER, selected for Director’s Fortnight at Cannes International Film Festival, is a powerful art house drama focusing on whether it is possible to return to a small community after committing the worst crime of all. Also starring Swedish pop star Ulrik Munther in an impressive debut role. When John returns home to his father after serving time in prison, he is looking forward to starting his life afresh. However in the local community, his crime is neither forgotten nor forgiven. John’s presence brings out the worst in everyone around him and a lynch-mob atmosphere slowly takes shape. Feeling abandoned by his former friends and the people he loves, John loses hope and the same aggressions that previously sent him to prison start building up again. Unable to leave the past behind, he decides to confront it.
