Every evening they swarmed over the plains, creating moving ornaments in the sky.DETAIL:More and more birds join the huge flock, pouring through the skies like water in a vacuum, a spectacular thing to see, one that the participants are utterly unaware of.

Dvalemodus
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.

Transit
This silent portrait of a multipurpose compound that serves as a storage site, maximum security space, and luxury showroom slowly turns into a bizarre black-and-white science-fiction movie with the building as the main character. Despite its abstract nature, the meticulously composed rhythmic combination of austere, carefully framed shots lacking any other context is a fitting architectural commentary on the spirit of our era.

Landline
There’s a helpline just for gay farmers. Through authentic recordings and reconstructed situations, the film offers a glimpse into the issue of British gay men from rural areas.

Moments of Silence

Always Here
This film presents the pragmatic downside of live sex websites through following the performing partners during their breaks between sex acts. The voyeuristic eye of the webcam captures trivial arguments between partners, political discussions, and the boredom and tired resignation of people trapped in a virtual aquarium.DETAIL:“Don't slap me, it hurts. I am a small girl and it hurts me as well.” “You are quite something. You are hypocrite. Do you think when you slap me it doesn't hurt? Do you know how much those fucking scratches hurt me?”

Reconstructing a Family
Twenty years ago, a family fell apart. Twenty years later, four independent testimonies by various family members reconstruct this sad time. As voiceovers to the film, their memories illustrate fictional visual material while at the same time embodying the hazy picture of how things were. Even 20 years later, the husband and wife laugh when remembering the beginning of their love, and cry when describing their separation. Tone of voice becomes the sole dramatic element in this otherwise impersonal Norwegian documentary.
