The city with the strange name is home to Film i Vast, a studio built in 1992 to spur economic development in the city. And it’s where von Trier has shot some of his most famous films — including 2000’s ‘Dancer in the Dark‘. It’s also stood in for the U.S. in the first two installments of his American trilogy, ‘Dogville‘ and ‘Manderlay‘. Visitors to the town — located about 50 miles north of Gothenburg — will be pleased to see that “Trollywood” has its own tourist attraction: a walk of fame, featuring the likes of Nicole Kidman and other stars films shot at the studio.
