‘Midsommar’ Producer and NonStop Entertainment CEO Launch Genre Production Label Mylla Films, Set ‘Devastation,’ ‘Hoin’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Elsa Keslassy International Correspondent“Midsommar” producer Patrik Andersson from B-Reel Films and Jakob Abrahamsson, a distribution veteran from NonStop Entertainment, have joined forces to launch Mylla Films, a Scandinavian genre film and TV production company.Aiming to nurture local talent and stories, and folklore and myths for an international audience, the banner is bowing at Cannes with a strong slate comprising of “Devastation,” Sweden’s first gothic Western, and “Hoin,” a conspiracy thriller based on a hit Swedish podcast and penned by Jerker Virdborg (Netflix’s “Black Crab”).“Devastation” revolves around two brothers who keep a town under a tyrannical stronghold during the never-ending winter and plague of 1867. An uprising begins from the most unexpected place.

“Hoin,” meanwhile, is a thriller based on Andreas Ericson’s popular podcast of the same name. Virdborg penned the movie, which Andersson described as a “‘Chinatown’ meets ‘The Ring.'” The story follows a journalist who travels to the barren archipelago of Stockholm, where food is scarce, military powers are at the doorsteps, and locals believe in an evil legend.Mylla is also developing “The Aquanauts,” an ambitious eco sci-fi series about two female scientists looking for a new and potentially dangerous human species in the depths of the valley of Lake Siljan in Dalarna, Sweden.The series, which Andersson and Abrahamsson are describing as a botanic sci-fi drama, is based on an IP created by the prominent artist Pompe Hedengren, who’s behind several high-profile exhibitions and shows.

BGT fans spot magician card clue as Alesha Dixon 'robs' Golden Buzzer in 'fix'
Britain’s Got Talent say they could see exactly how a magician wowed the judges with his sleight of hand card tricks, amid claims that he should have got the Golden Buzzer.Junwoo, 23, who travelled from his home in South Korea to audition for the ITV show, had the audience gasping as he produced an endless stream of cards, seemingly out of nowhere, to the soundtrack of Cake by the Ocean by DNCE.Alesha Dixon, David Walliams, Simon Cowell and Amanda Holden all rose to their feet in admiration at the end of his routine.Some viewers praised his “supernatural” performance and criticised Alesha for not awarding him the Golden Buzzer straight through to the live shows, claiming it was a fix when it went to a hip hop duo later in the show.But others weren’t as impressed with Junwoo’s act, saying they could easily see how he was making his “magic”. One posted on Twitter: “Magician needs to use smaller cards so we don't clearly see them in his hand, and make it less glaringly obvious when he's taking more from his sleeves.”Others noted: “Magicians have done this for years, but with doves,” and: “They’re talking like they’ve never seen magicians do sleight of hands tricks."Junwoo, who only took up magic tricks after watching other contestants on BGT on YouTube, started his act by borrowing Alesha Dixon’s glasses and making them disappear.At the end he produced a box made from cards that contained her missing sunnies.

Netflix suggests employees should quit if they’re offended by its content
Netflix employees should leave the company if they take issue with its programming, the streaming giant has said in an internal memo obtained ahead of its publication this week.Within the platform’s ‘Artistic Expression’ section of its corporate culture memo, which was due to be shared publicly on Thursday (May 19) although was obtained in advance by Variety, employees are advised that they should leave the company if they’re offended by the streamer’s “content breadth”.The anti-censorship drive comes months after Netflix aired Dave Chappelle’s controversial stand-up special The Closer, which prompted LGBTQ+ employees and supporters to walk out in protest over his transphobic and homophobic jokes.At the time Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos defended Chappelle, saying: “We don’t allow Netflix titles that are designed to incite hate or violence, and we don’t believe The Closer crosses that line.”Now, the ‘Artistic Expression’ of Netflix’s updated memo states: “Not everyone will like — or agree with — everything on our service.“While every title is different, we approach them based on the same set of principles: we support the artistic expression of the creators we choose to work with; we program for a diversity of audiences and tastes; and we let viewers decide what’s appropriate for them, versus having Netflix censor specific artists or voices.”The section concludes that employees’ “personal values” about what they consider “harmful” will not be taken into consideration.It continued: “As employees we support the principle that Netflix offers a diversity of stories, even if we find some titles counter to our own personal values. Depending on your role, you may need to work on titles you perceive to be harmful.
