SCANDINAVIAN SHORT PANORAMA

Selected by Karolina Lidin
 

NORWAY  Eivind Tolås
Love is the law


Eivind Tolås  The short film 'Love is the Law' by Eivind Tolås has been selected for Semaine Internationale de la Critique in Cannes. The film is based on a poem by Ole Mads Vevle and produced by Lars Løge for Flimmer Film AS. Short Film, 6min

Love is the law

 DANMARK  Max Kestner
Max by Chance

This is the story of Max, the director's own story, playfully animated within the realms of documentary. Max's story traces back several generations to sailers, industrialists and Summer of Love hippies - everyone depicted with whole-hearted love and equal amounts of irony. But there is something more at stake here, something larger than the biographical filmic note of a single man. The film embraces with vulnerable playfulness life's many coincidences and grapples with questions such as genetics, destiny and family patterns.

The parasite

Niklas is a truck driver in a chipboard factory in a small community in northern Sweden

 DANMARK  Kassandra Wellendorf
Close

Close examines a series of situations between bodies that reach out for each other. How close can you get? And can you ever get close enough? The form is experimental and depicts the meeting of bodies in unusual close-ups that bypass the typical pornographic exhibition of naked bodies. The result is a picture ballet that accommodates beauty as well as claustrophobic terror in its presentation of feelings like fear, intimacy and distance.

 DANMARK  Jacob Tschernia
2 Minutes

The best way to find out who you are is to test your own limits - to do the utmost of your ability. That is the theme of this short psychological thriller. A boy lies in a bathtub, holding his breath. He is trying to break his personal record - 2 minutes.

NORWAY  Frederikke Aspöck
Happy Now

"Happy Now" is a bittersweet story about wanting to be seen as an individual. A typical American family goes to the beach. Their seemingly perfect life is turned upside-down when the mother Carol, who has long felt overlooked in her marriage, kisses a lifeguard and is caught by her husband.

Happy Now
