After admiring Viggo Mortensen’s shirt (check out the table football design), we then sat down with the affable star to discuss his latest venture, the creative, minimalist drama Jauja – where he takes on the leading role of Gunnar Dinesen.

We spoke about collaborating with innovative filmmaker Lisandro Alonso, and whether Mortensen feels he has more invested in the project given his role as producer. He also tells us what it is about working behind the scenes in film that appeals to him, his experience riding horses, and about his next project, the drama Captain Fantastic.

Jauja is released on April 10th.
