Filming is now complete for Triangle Of Sadness, directed by Ruben Östlund (The Square), which takes a satirical look at the world of fashion and the super-rich. Filming began in February but the COVID-19 pandemic forced a three month hiatus to production aboard the yacht Christina Onassis in the Ionian Sea and on the island of Evia.
The film takes place on a luxury cruise where its Marxist captain (Woody Harrelson) punishes his spoilt passengers by staging a grand dinner during a violent storm, leading to food poisoning and seasickness. But when they all become marooned on a deserted island, the hierarchy is turned upside down and the power dynamic shifts.
The international cast includes Charlbi Dean (Black Lightning) from South Africa, Henrik Dorsin (Solsidan) from Sweden, Iris Berben (Miss Sixty) from Germany, Vicki Berlin (Anja & Viktor) from Denmark, Harris Dickinson (Beach Rats) and Oliver Ford Davies (Star Wars) from the UK, and Zlatko Buric (Pusher) from Croatia.
Ruben Östlund said: “I could not have hoped for a production that worked better in these extreme circumstances. Blasting the Onassis yacht feels like a worthy end to filming. Not just considering the theme of the film, but as a tribute to the entire team that has worked so hard!”
Triangle Of Sadness is slated for a theatrical premiere in 2021.
