MOT NORD | NORTHBOUND

Rullebrett på en frossen strand i Lofoten er ikke et vanlig syn. Men det ble en drøm for noen av Norges beste skatere å komme seg vekk fra bygatene og ut i verdens vakreste natur. Resultatet ble et uvanlig møte mellom en urban kultur og en iskald, krevende og poetisk natur. Og en fantastisk kortfilm som blir sett over hele verden.

We are accustomed to see the skateboard being used in cities and on the hard asphalt. This film shows the first attempt to bring skateboard into nature and skate on frozen sand beaches in northern Norway. Join four of Norway's best skaters in this poetic and playful encounter with the Arctic winter.

PUSH IT

Hedda forsøker så godt hun kan å komme innpå Adam, men alt hun gjør er feil. Adam bestemmer reglene. En film om det å ikke vinne til tross for at man er best; en utforsking av identitet, følelser og fysisk styrke.

Hedda tries to approach Adam in every way she can, but everything she does turns out wrong. But Adam gets to break all the rules. A film about never being able to win, even though you’re the best; an exploration of identity, emotions and physical strength.

A relationship between two sisters is put to the test when a new role model appears for the younger sister Cleo. At the center of attention is the biggest question of all: How does one know that one is in love, and are there any shortcuts to the answer?

(19 876 steg i Auschwitz/Birkenau)

PISTOL

Syvårige Bilal sikter og skyter. Fienden faller død om med en kule i hjertet. Så avbrytes leken; hans far, som kjører taxi, henter ham. De er i en skolegård i København, ikke i en krigssone. Men snart testes grensene mellom fantasi og virkelighet på nytt, når en junkie praier taxien og holder dem gissel i bilen.

Seven-year-old Bilal aims, shoots and kills. No one is hurt in this game of war played out in a Copenhagen schoolyard, but the illusion is convincing, until Bilal’s dad honks and picks him up in his taxi. Soon the boundaries of imagination and reality are tested again, when an armed junkie holds them hostage in the car.

Script: Malen Rykær | Camera: Sturla Brandth Grøvlen | Cast: Morten Hee Andersen, Ernesto Piga Carbone, Bilal Mahdaovi, Hakeem Hamil Ali

THE BURDEN (Min Börda)

Et moderne supermarked ligger ved siden av motorveien. Med lystige, musikalske opptrinn håndterer de ansatte sin traurige hverdag og eksistensielle angst. Apokalypsen frister som befrielse.

A modern supermarket is located next to the highway. The employees in the different stores deal with boredom and existential anxiety by performing cheerful musical tunes. The apocalypse is tempting as liberation.
