24th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
A majestic mountain range rises over a Norwegian town engulfed in darkness. The stormy sea laps at its shores. A thick snow is falling. The town’s inhabitants, almost motionless in their existence, are like creatures in hibernation. The camera’s static shots resembling photographs are woven together into an experimental documentary on life in Skaland.
Photographer and member of Magnum Photos Bieke Depoorter (1986) has published three books. Her first short film was made in cooperation with Belgian musician and audiovisual artist Mattias De Craene (1989).
