The co-production Heartbound by Janus Metz and Sine Plambech will have its World Premiere during the Toronto International Film Festival 2018 (TIFF).
Heartbound is a unique longitudinal study of a network of Thai/Danish marriages shot over ten years. It is an exploration of globalization over time set on the intimate stage of marriage and family.
The film follows four couples and their children and documents how their lives develop as a consequence of the economic and emotional bonds that tie them together. It is an ensemble piece and an epic family drama set in two outskirt communities at either side of the global divide – yet intimately connected through marriage migration.
The film is a co-production of Magic Hour Films (DK) and Metz Film (DK) with Upfront Films (DK), Vilda Bomben (SE), Film I Väst (SE) and BALDR Film (NL). The film is supported by The Netherlands Film Fund and VPRO and will be released in the Netherlands by Cinema Delicatessen. For more information click here.

Metz won the Critics’ Week Grand Prize at Cannes for ‘Armadillo’ (2010). Recent films include the fiction feature ‘Borg McEnroe’ (Openingfilm TIFF 2017).
