APPLAUSE, starring Chlotrudis Honoree Paprika Steen Makes its way to the U.S.!
The Chlotrudis Society for Independent Film is excited to announce that World Wide Motion Pictures Corporation has picked up Danish film APPLAUSE for U.S. release in early December, and we are working with the distribution company to spread the word. Chlotrudis members will want to see Paprika Steen's show-stopping, performance as a popular actress struggling to control her alcohol addiction. Members saw the film at last year's Toronto International Film Festival, and the raves for Steen herald a potential Chlotrudis Award nomination.
Paprika Steen won the coveted Chlotrudis Career-so-far award in 2009 honoring her stunning work both in front of the camera in films like OPEN HEARTS, CELEBRATION and THE SUBSTITUTE, and behind the camera directing the powerful AFTERMATH and the light-hearted WITH YOUR PERMISSION. Paprika was scheduled to appear at the 15th Annual Chlotrudis Awards Ceremony, but unfortunately was unable to attend due to a bought of the flu. But Chlotrudis members were able to meet the delightful actor/director during her appearance at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2009, and we're very happy to spread the word about this dramatic film and her tour de force performance.
We encourage you to visit the U.S. APPLAUSE website at http://www.applausemovie.com, where you can even ask Paprika questions via twitter, Facebook or MySpace using the site's "Ask Paprika" page.
