The eye-opening and uncategorizable Oscar nominated and Cannes Un Certain Regard top-prize winner BORDER will be released in UK and Irish cinemas by Modern Films and MUBI on 8 March 2019 with Valentine’s Day previews across the country on 14 February 2019 including a BFI Flagship screening attended by cast and crew.

BORDER features an astonishing central performance from Eva Melander (Flocking), as a woman out of place in society, and strong support from Eero Milonoff (The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Maki) as the source of her fascination - with both actors undergoing incredible physical transformations for the roles. Directed by Iranian-Danish filmmaker Ali Abbasi, co-written by Isabella Eklöf (dir. Holiday) and LET THE RIGHT ONE IN author John Ajvide Lindqvist on whose story this film is also based, BORDER brilliantly mixes romance, noir, social realism and supernatural horror to a bold and surprising effect.

Customs officer Tina is known for her extraordinary sense of smell. It's almost as if she can sniff out the guilt on anyone hiding something. But when Vore, a suspicious-looking man, walks past her, her abilities are challenged for the first time ever. Tina can sense Vore is hiding something she can't identify. Even worse, she feels a strange attraction to him. As Tina develops a special bond with Vore and discovers his true identity, she also realizes the truth about herself. Tina, like Vore, does not belong to this world. Her entire existence has been a lie and now she has to choose: keep living the lie or embrace Vore's terrifying revelations.

Winner of the Un Certain Regard Award at the Cannes Film Festival, BORDER is the winner of 6 Swedish Guldbagge Awards including Best Film, Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor. It is distributed in North America through Neon in partnership with MoviePass, where it has grossed over $1m.

Exploring ancient folklore, modern day immigration issues and with Oscar nominated hair and make-up transformations, the film boasts what is without a shadow of a doubt the most provocative, unusual, liberating and tender love scenes of the year. Star Eva Melander spent 4 hours in make-up and gained 40 pounds to play the role of outsider Tina in the film.

Made for anyone with a love of cinema and a passion for stories that explore the human condition, BORDER gives an empathetic and mesmerising depiction of what it means to be an outsider in your own world and to fall in love no matter who you are.
