LOS ANGELES - EntSun -- Pleasure, the debut feature by Ninja Thyberg, has been selected to compete in the World Dramatic section of the Sundance Film Festival (28 January – 3rd February) which will take place both digitally and on satellite screens across the USA. The story, penned by the director herself in tandem with Peter Modestij, revolves around Bella, a young and ambitious 20-year-old girl who travels from Sweden to Los Angeles to become the next big adult star. She later meets Mike (played by Jason Toler), the owner  of the top adult agency in Los Angeles. In a press release published by the Swedish Film Institute, Pleasure was described as "a film about ambition and feminism, set in one of the world's most patriarchal structures". The lead role is played by young Sofia Kappel, and she is flanked mostly by an authentic cast from the porn-film industry, such as AVN (Adult Video News), award winner Dana DeArmond, and Mark Spiegler. The cinematography has been entrusted to Sophie Winqvist (Aniara, Aatma), whilst Paula Loos (The Wisdom Tooth, The Possession of Hannah Grace) served as the production designer. Shortly after the announcement of the Sundance premiere, fans quickly purchased tickets, leading to a sold out showing.
