GIRLS OF THE SUN DP Mattias Troelstrup in Cannes

ARRI talked to DP Mattias Troelstrup at the Cannes International Film Festival about his work on GIRLS OF THE SUN.

The film is set in a remote region of northern Iraq and tells the story of a group of women who have escaped kidnap from Islamic fighters, and their subsequent participation in combat. It combines action sequences with sensitive portrayals of characters who have survived horrific experiences.

The film was shot on an ALEXA Mini, which was chosen for its versatility and picture quality. “We wanted that shallow depth of field, but still see the environment,” Mattias told us, “you can put it anywhere.”
