Wes Bentley and Erik Skjoldbjaerg, Pioneer

A talk from actor Wes Bentley and director Erik Skjoldbjaerg on their thriller, Pioneer, featured in the 38th Toronto International Film Festival. The conspiracy-theory style film is set during the early days of Norway's oil boom in the '80s.

Bentley has starred in the two character play Venus in Furs, a role which signaled the young star of American Beauty to conquer his problems with addiction. The actor discusses life in the fast lane, getting a grip and finding happiness in work. Skjoldbjaerg offers his insight into Pioneer's true tale of the dangerous North Sea oil exploration that made Norway one of the world’s richest nations.
