Do We Dare (Jagad) is an upcoming Swedish production directed by Jannike Grut with a worldwide release next year. The film created by Birgitta Liljedahl is a poetic drama set in a 16th century citadel, in which the central characters of this story find themselves trapped in a painful quest that has haunted generations before them, the fighting between both inner and outer demons, to over again be able to say yes to life. To introduce this project to the world, the Swedish production company Geozone International AB has recently launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, and it is welcoming generous support and backing.

“The film will go to film festivals upon its completion and all funds raised through this Kickstarter campaign will play a major role in shooting the last scenes at the 16th century Citadel, and this fundraising will also help us with our post-production,” said the screenwriter and producer Birgitta Liljedahl, while introducing this project to the Kickstarter community. “This film was born at the creative hub of Aspö Writing Lab (www.aspowritinglab.se) in the Swedish Archipelago in 2020, where professional screenwriters, actors, photographers, directors, filmmakers and musicians meet to jointly develop new film ideas, and it’s directed by the talented and award winning director Jannike Grut,” Liljedahl added.

Further details are available on the Kickstarter campaign page of the project.
