The wave of disclosures from celebrities relating to occasions they have been sexually harassed or assaulted exhibits no signal of breaking, provided that nearly each girl has such a narrative (as do many males and non-binary of us). Icelandic artist Björk joined the refrain of voices which have been talking out in opposition to these abuses of energy, in addition to the tradition that fosters them. Over the weekend, she posted a couple of “Danish movie director” who made positive her “humiliation and position as a lesser sexually harassed being was the norm” on set.
Since Björk has starred in solely a few movies, and solely considered one of them was directed by a Danish filmmaker, individuals have surmised that she was referring to Lars Von Trier, who helmed 2000’s Dancer In The Darkish. Von Trier doesn’t imagine she’s speaking about him, although, having launched a press release of sort-of denial by way of a 3rd get together simply yesterday. Now Björk has shared extra particulars in regards to the harassment, which after all sounds completely terrible.
The Vulnicura artist lists a number of disturbing encounters with this director, who repeatedly propositioned her in graphic element whereas his spouse was in earshot, threatened to interrupt into her lodge room at night time, and smashed a chair when she lastly instructed him to maintain his rattling palms to himself. And whereas she declined to call the director or movie, she did go away a reasonably vital clue. In her newest put up, Björk writes, “fabricated tales within the press about me being tough by his producer. this matches superbly the weinstein strategies and bullying. i’ve by no means eaten a shirt. unsure that’s even attainable.” One of many many experiences from the Dancer In The Darkish set that claimed the singer-actress was “tough” to work with included a narrative that she’d ripped up a shirt she didn’t need to put on and ate “shreds” of it. Now we look forward to Von Trier to subject one other assertion by way of one other collaborator, assuming he has any.
