Just picked up for US distribution is the strange comedy horror Koko-Di Koko-Da. The film has excited audiences and critics at festivals including: Sundance Film Festival, Rotterdam Film Festival, Seattle Film Festival, Karlovy Vary Film Festival and most recently Fantasia Film Festival 2019 (Winner of the AQCC-Camera Lucida Prize) and will soon screen at Fantastic Fest 2019 and Brooklyn Horror Film Festival 2019. It comes from writer/director Johannes Nyholm, who helmed genre festival hit The Giant.
Elin (Katarina Jakobson) and Tobias (Leif Edlund) are a happily married couple who regularly vacation with their young daughter. The family is on a dreamy holiday when an innocuous case of food poisoning derails their plans and forever alters the course of their lives. Three years later, the once loving couple is on the road again to go camping, looking for one last chance to go back to the way things used to be. But what once was is lost, and our characters instead find themselves having to relive the same nightmarish events, as that day and the horrors it brings repeat themselves infinitely. Together, they must overcome their trauma, reconcile with their past and fight for their lives. Over, and over, and over again.
Koko-Di Koko-Da will screen across the US in November and subsequently be released on the various VOD platforms.
