Oscar-nominated, Cannes Palme d’Or winning Danish director Lars von Trier has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
Danish media reported on Monday that Trier’s long-time production company Zentropa had put out a statement announcing the diagnosis with the director’s blessing.
Zentropa said Trier would continue to work on his upcoming series The Kingdom Exodus, which is the third and final instalment of his rebooted 1990s cult supernatural TV show The Kingdom.
However, the company added that as a result of his Parkinson’s diagnosis, Trier would do very little press for the launch of the show which is due to premiere at the Venice Film Festival at the end of August.
Von Trier is Denmark’s at one most feted and controversial contemporary director.
