Se høydepunktene fra Nordisk Panorama på BIFF

I samarbeid med Vestnorsk Filmsenter presenterer Bergen internasjonale filmfestival de viktigste filmene i en egen visning nå på onsdag. Onsdag 19. oktober kl 19.30 på Tivoli kan du få med deg to av Nordens beste dokumentarer, danske MANENBERG (Karen Waltorp & Christian Vium) og svenske KOKVINNORNA (Peter Gerdehag).

 

Nordisk Panorama er en årlig festival for kortfilm og dokumentar som arrangeres på rundgang i Bergen, Reykjavik, Malmø, Århus og Oulo. Årets utgave ble arrangert i danske Århus i september, og i det ordinære programmet kan du i tillegg få deg andre viktige filmer fra denne festivalen, som IMAGINING EMMANUEL (Norske dokumentarer i konkurranse), NO SEX JUST UNDERSTAND (Norsk kortfilmkonkurranse) og den finske kortdokumentaren HOW TO PICK BERRIES (Internasjonalt kortprogram).

 

Manenberg by Karen Walltorp & Christian Virum (Denmark)

Statement from the jury:
The film is a dark story about how hard it is to make the right choice. The directors have managed to get close to their characters and follow them through their lives full of challenges, in a community surrounded by drugs and crime. They have spent an impressive amount of time in order to show the positive sides of people and life in a South African township. In spite of all, there is hope.


Kokvinnorna by Peter Gerdehag

The story of an intricate and sometimes painful relationship between two sisters whose lives revolve around a dozen cows. One sister adores them, the other hates them.

 

Imagining Emanuel by Thomas A. Østbye (Norway)

Statement from the jury:
The jury has chosen Imagining Emanuel for an Honorable Mention because of its original idea and structural strength. Within a strictly respected formal setting the filmmaker questions identity and contrasts various perceptions of reality, successfully translating them into their human dimension by questioning our biased way of constructing identity.

 

No Sex Just Understand by Mariken Halle (Sweden)

Statement from the jury:
In the first Honorable Mention we, as viewers, are merely bystanders. From a certain distance we witness how the main characters accidentally meet. Between blurry dialogues we glimpse loneliness, family tragedy, aggression and sexual tension that ultimately develops into a clash of opposite universes. A memorable film that is distinguished by an impressive sense of timing and perhaps, more importantly, just the right dose of humour.

 

How to Pick Berries by Elina Talvensaari (Finland)

Statement from the jury:
The FEDEORA jury gives the award to the film How to Pick Berries, a visually poetical and technically superb documentary. The film deals in a mystical way with a fragment of the social reality and simultaneously leaves it up to the viewers themselves to reflect upon the perspectives of the movie.
