Minimalen presents, in cooperation with Midtnorsk Filmsenter
BEST OF SHORT DOCUMENTARIES
Short documentaries on digital platforms are on the rise, and their popularity
is increasing. World-renowned news agencies are focusing on short
documentaries from around the world with artistic and journalistic ambitions,
and the films reach a large and growing audience. Minimalen is a partner in
Midtnorsk Filmsenter´s new project focusing on the short documentary, and
would like to present what we find to be some of the best short documentary films
internationally from recent years.

WHAT HAPPENED TO HER
En kriminalteknisk utforsking av vår kulturelle besettelse med bilder av døde kvinner på lerretet.
A forensic exploration of our cultural obsession with images of the dead woman on screen.
En by utenfor allfarvei i Texas. Et sted utenfor tiden. En ørken hvor rare lys danser på nattehimmelen. Et mekka for elskere av minimalistisk kunst. Et landskap med rømte hester, originaler og hurtigmatbiler. Og så er det den gigantiske sitronen.
A town on the borderlands of Texas. A place out of time. A desert where strange lights dance in the night sky. A mecca for lovers of minimalist art. A landscape of lost horses, freaks and food trucks. And then there’s the giant lemon.
Denne filmen, filmet under slaget ved Kobani, viser oss kvinnene som står midt i krigen mot IS. Med stoisk utholdenhet og hjelp fra amerikanske luftangrep leder disse kvinnene frihetskampen.
Filmed during the battle of Kobani, this film reveals the women at the heart of the fight against IS. With stoical perseverance and the aid of American airstrikes, these women are leading the fight for freedom.

SHORT DOCS: MASTERCLASS ELOISE KING
Midtnorsk Filmsenter is launching the project Short documentaries on
international digital platforms, aimed at professional directors and producers
in Trøndelag. The project will last for a year (to be repeated in 2020), where a
selected group of filmmakers get the chance to develop their ideas under
guidance of leading international experts. Minimalen is a partner in this project
which is supported by Arts Council Norway, and as an introduction to the first
project session we will screen a selection of short documentaries followed by a
masterclass with Eloise King - an acclaimed filmmaker and former executive
producer at VICE.
Eloise King is an award-winning filmmaker and most recently, she was
Global Executive Producer at VICE, overseeing all digital channels in the UK, and
i-D globally. Her body of work has a focus on telling powerful human stories
that foreground marginalised voices, and previous titles include Kids Behind
Bars (ITV), Acid Attacks (VICE) and the multi award-winning ‘Gurls Talk series.
In 2015, King founded Women on Docs, a UK and LA based screening collective
and event network celebrating the contribution of women to documentary
film. In 2018 King was recognised for ‘Outstanding Achievement’ in Campaign
magazine and Creative Equals list of female leaders defining creativity.
