"No matter where you go, there you are."


Jenny Slate, Gillian Anderson and Zach Galifianakis head to Norway in the trailer for The Sunlit Night

The Sunlit Night follows an aspiring painter (Slate) from New York City to the farthest reaches of Arctic Norway for an assignment she hopes will invigorate her work and expand her horizons. In a remote village, among the locals, she meets a fellow New Yorker (Sharp), who has come in search of a proper Viking funeral only to find that the Chief (Galifianakis) is but a re-enactor from Cincinnati. The eclectic crew ranges from “home” to “lost,” within the extreme and dazzling landscape of the Far North. Under a sun that never quite sets, and the high standards of an unforgiving mentor, Frances must navigate between ambition, desire, obligation, and risk in order to find a way forward.

Directed by David Wnendt, the film is an adaptation of Rebecca Dinerstein’s novel of the same name. It stars Jenny Slate, Gillian Anderson, Alex Sharp, Zach Galifianakis, and Jessica Hecht.

The Sunlit Night is out on VOD on July 17th from Quiver Distribution.
