THE PRACTICE OF LOVE
Stillbilder som sirkulerer rundt en enslig rollefigur. Filmen skifter mellom nærbilder av enkle, hverdagslige bevegelser, abstrakte sekvenser og skreven tekst, og skaper slik en studie av kjærlighet som forsøk på å kommunisere ved hjelp av kroppen, stemmen, språk og lyd.

Still images circling around a single character. The film shifts between close-ups of simple, everyday movements, abstract sequences and written text, thus creating a study of love as attempts to communicate through the means of the body, the voice, language and sound.

TRAIN ROBBERS (Togrøvere)

På midten av nittitallet ble det avdekket stort svinn av varer på nordgående godstog fra Trondheim. Det viste seg at toget i en toårsperiode hadde blitt utsatt for en rekke skjulte ran, først og fremst av brus og øl. Saken fikk en uventet vending da de skyldige viste seg å være en gruppe unge gutter i alderen 11 til 15 år. En film om utenforskap, og konsekvensene av dette.

In the mid-nineties, a large deficit from northbound freight trains from Trondheim was discovered. As it turned out, for a period of two years, the train had been robbed in secret, primarily in the form of soda and beer. Unexpectedly, the guilty party was revealed to be a group of young boys aged 11 to 15. A film about being an outsider, and its consequences.

PSYCHIC

Neonskiltene skjærer gjennom mørket. Lokkende, som sekulære templer som lover rettledning gjennom forvirringen vi kjenner som livet.

The neon signs cuts through the darkness. Beckoning, like temples of a secular religion promising guidance through the confusion that is life.

THE LAMP IN THE CEILING

Gjennom utforsking av materialiteten til rom, objekter, og det å være inne, undersøker filmen hvordan voldtekt oftere enn ikke skjer innen den opplevde tryggheten av det som anses som noens hjem.

Through exploration of the materiality of spaces, objects, and of being inside, the film examines how rape more often than not happens within the perceived safety of what is considered someone’s home.

Script, Camera, Editing: Anette Svane | Cast (voice): Ingrid Synneva Holtar

UNOBJECTIFIED MASTURBATORS (Onanerende subjekter)

En jentegjeng oppsøker en høyde med utsikt over byen. Lettere beruset av hjemmelagde drinker knipser de romantiserende bilder av seg selv og de idylliske omgivelsene. Plutselig oppdager jentene at de ikke er alene om å "romantisere" øyeblikket.

A group of girls seek out a height with a view. Slightly intoxicated, they snap romanticizing pictures of themselves and the beautiful surroundings. Suddenly, they discover they are not the only ones to “romanticize” the moment.
