Midsommar 1 210x300 - Anatomy of a Scene: How Ari Aster Succeeded at Bringing a Bad Trip to the Big Screen in MIDSOMMAR

Ari Aster’s follow-up to Hereditary, Midsommar, starts with a gut punch, but things don’t really begin to spiral out of control until the lead protagonist, Dani (played by Florence Pugh) has a bad trip after being passive-aggressively pressured into taking psychedelic mushrooms.

In the video embedded at the top of the article, Aster explains how he brought this pivotal moment to the big screen. It’s a must-watch for budding filmmakers and anyone who wants to know more about what it took to bring Midsommar to fruition.

If you’ve yet to see Midsommar for yourself, the film is still screening in theaters nationwide. Check out the synopsis and trailer below.

Synopsis:
A couple travel to Sweden to visit their friend’s rural hometown for its fabled midsummer festival, but what begins as an idyllic retreat quickly devolves into an increasingly violent and bizarre competition at the hands of a pagan cult.

Midsommar stars Florence Pugh, Will Poulter, and Jack Reynor.
