TEN METER TOWER (Hopptornet)

Situasjonen i seg selv belyser et dilemma. Frykten for å gjøre det eller ydmykelsen i å gi seg. Hvordan er vi når vi nøler, og når vi bestemmer oss? Hvordan oppfører vi oss når vi er alene, og hvordan forholder vi oss til andre?

The situation itself highlights a dilemma. The fear of going for it, or the humiliation of backing down. What are we like when we hesitate, and when we decide? How do we behave when we're alone, and what are we like when relating to others?

DAD (Pappa)

Da filmskaperens pappa døde, etterlot han seg sine mest personlige dagbøker. Disse dagbøkene beskriver en helt annerledes person enn den fraværende pappaen hun kjente mens han levde. I filmen forsøker regissøren å finne frem til og bli kjent med farens skjulte personlighet.

When the filmmaker’s father died, he left his most personal diaries. These diaries described her dad as a totally different person from whom he appeared to be in real life. In this film the filmmaker tries to get to know her dad’s inner hidden personality.

RETRACT (Retrett)

Gritt arbeider med å sette sine teorier ut i praksis som nyankommen bevegelseskunstner til landet for de selverklærte vinnerne av verdenslotteriet. Vi følger henne i hennes nye hverdag, og gjennom en fabulerende stemme finner vi et menneske med et stort gap mellom sin indre og ytre verden.

The roving Gritt fights the exhausting battle of establishing her ideas into practice as an autodidact movement artist arriving the capital of the self acclaimed winners of the world lottery. We follow her during her first week in Oslo, and through her philosophical but rather dissociative voice, we find a person with a huge gap between her inner and outer world.

DARK MATTER (Mørk materie)

Mørk materie er en uidentifisert og usynlig kraft i universet. Ved å abstrahere trær, vann og vulkanske landskap uttrykkes den ukjente materien gjennom den kjente materien. Naturlig lyd er redusert i hastighet til et punkt hvor den blir ugjenkjennelig.

Dark matter is an unidentified and invisible force in the universe. By abstracting trees, water and volcanic landscapes, the film expresses the unknown matter through known matter. Natural sound is slowed down to a point where it becomes alien.
