The Nordic & Baltic Oscar Contenders series at Scandinavia House returns this season with select in-house and virtual screenings of films chosen by the Nordic & Baltic countries to compete for the Oscar nomination for the Best International Feature Film.
On December 6 at Scandinavia House, see the Swedish documentary The Most Beautiful Boy in the World/ Världens vackraste pojke (dir. Kristian Petri & Kristina Lindstrom, Sweden, 2021).
Following the screening, actress Isabella Rossellini will join us with directors Kristian Petri & Kristina Lindstrom for a film Q&A.

In 1971 at the world premiere of Death in Venice in London, Italian director Luchino Visconti proclaimed Björn Andrésen, the teen star of his latest film, “the most beautiful boy in the world.” Just 16 at the time when the film came out, Andrésen was unprepared for instantly becoming an international celebrity. Fifty years later, Björn looks back on his life, in a story of a boy who was thrust to international stardom for his iconic looks and lived a life of glamour as well as heartbreak. (94 min. In Swedish, English, French, Italian, and Japanese with English subtitles)

“Haunting… a psychologically probing portrait” —New York Times
“One of the few documentaries to dwell so gravely and persuasively on how sudden fame can ruin a young life, bypassing any perks of stardom” —Vogue
