Creative Mind - Ruben Östlund

Presenting Creative Mind Ruben Östlund in Velour

We asked the film director Ruben Östlund to choose his favorite pieces from collection and summed this into a Creative Mind portrait of “ The Director”.

We had the chance to meet up with Ruben in one of Gothenburg´s oldest cinemas, Draken during the Gothenburg International Film Festival. The portrait shows a cut from the most dramatic scene of his new film “Tourist”. Östlund said that one of the goals of the film is to make the most spectacular avalanche scene in film history…

Some of his awards are; The film The involuntary was Sweden’s contribution to the Oscar category of best non-English film. Östlund’s short film Incident by a Bank won the Golden Bear for Best Short Film at the 60th Berlin International Film Festival. The Play was awarded the “Coup de Coeur”, an award that goes to the Cannes festival’s favorite film.
