Opening Night Screening and Director’s Q&A (with a special introduction by Murderous Trance and Game of Thrones star, Pilou Asbæk)!
Can a person be hypnotized to kill and act against their own morality?
Murderous Trance is based on the true story of a remarkable series of hypnosis crimes that took place in Denmark in 1950s. Murderous Trance follows criminal investigator Anders Olsen (Pilou Asbæk – Game of Thrones, Ben-Hur, Ghost in the Shell) as he investigates a case in which a bank robber shoots two bank clerks before fleeing to the streets of Copenhagen with the money. With the help of a hypnotist (Rade Šerbedžija – Downton Abbey, Mission Impossible 2, Eyes Wide Shut), Olsen discovers a deeper mystery involving mind control and the charismatic criminal Björn Schow Nielsen (Josh Lucas – Ford v. Ferrari, The Lincoln Lawyer, Dear Eleanor) who secretly befriends the investigator’s young wife, bringing the menace ever closer to the investigator.
