Lars von Trier plans to continue his career despite his illness: “You just have to get used to the tremors and not be ashamed of it”

The third season of the Lars von Trier Kingdom series starts in October.

The third season of Lars von Trier’s Valtakunta series, i.e. The Kingdom Exodus, premiered yesterday at the Venice Film Festival. Von Trier himself was not there, but held a press conference and gave challenges via Zoom. The filmmaker was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease four months ago, but he has been suffering from it for longer.

Von Trier plans to continue his career despite the illness.

– Because of my illness, I couldn’t be the kind of director I wanted to be. It’s a shame for the actors of the Valtakunta series, who still did a great job, von Trier said of Variety by.

– I’m going to take a break next and find out what I can do. I just have to get used to the tremors and not be ashamed of it in front of people. Then I’m going to continue my career because what else would I do?

In Finland, The Kingdom: Exodus can be seen on Elisa Viihde Viaplay. A couple of weeks ago, the streaming service also released all eight episodes of the original series in restored versions.

The first episode of The Kingdom: Exodus series premieres on Elisa Viihde Viaplay on October 9.
