Market & Crossover

How to Kill a Diva is a twisted tale of obsession in a similar spirit of Ingmar Bergman’s Persona and Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo, along with more recent female-led thrillers such as The Black Swan, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and Elle.


Director’s Statement

How to Kill a Diva is the final dissolution of a woman of worth; a woman who once had great potential herself; who even as defeated, as she is destroyed, has a worth exceeding that of the ‘healthy’ coarse-grained figures who kill her.
