Lars von Trier Berlin Shirt

Always a rebel! It's extremely rare that we would ever post photos from a red carpet event, but this time I just can't help it. At the Berlin Film Festival premiere of Lars von Trier's new film Nymphomaniac, the controversial Danish director wore the perfect shirt. Many may recall that in 2011, after premiering his film Melancholia at the Cannes Film Festival, he was banned from the festival, "Persona Non Grata" (meaning "an unwelcome person"), for remarks during the press conference. Years later he's cleared the air, but has also embraced the ban as a badge of an honor, showing off a black shirt with the phrase on it. Photos below.

Here's Lars von Trier at the press conference/premiere of Nymphomaniac in Berlin + cast in the first one.

A big thank you to photo website Zimbio for most of these shots - see more from the Berlin premiere there.

Acclaimed/controversial/loved/hated Danish filmmaker Lars von Trier is responsible for many great films, from Breaking the Waves to Dancer in the Dark to Dogville to Antichrist to Melancholia. This year he's premiering his latest, Nymphomaniac, a hardcore story about a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac (Charlotte Gainsbourg) who recounts her erotic experiences to the man who saves her. The film was first released in Denmark in December, played at Sundance and Berlin, will be out this spring in the US starting in March and April. Someone is going to print their own version of this shirt. Just tell me when/where I can buy one.
