Retrett - Norway - North American Premiere

Directed by: Itonje Søimer Guttormsen

Country: Norway

Premiere: North American Premiere

The roving Gritt (35) fights the exhausting battle of establishing her ideas into practice as a autodidact movement artist arriving the capital of the self acclaimed winners of the world lottery. We follow her during her first week in Oslo, and through her philosophical but rather dissociative voice we find a person with a huge gap between her inner and outer world.  
Retrett deals with alienation, dignity and courage of dreams in a poetic and humorous way, and shows a woman rarely portrayed in film.

Directed by: Leonard Rääf

Country: Sweden

Premiere: North American Premiere

 

Julie Renard, a young girl with a discrete passion for photography, lives on the Swedish countryside together with her wacky family. Three goofy brothers, a confused father who wishes he was French and a mother who's not often around. It's the summer of 98', and Julie follows her brothers into the woods. After losing them, she stumbles upon a stranger with a gun. Luckily the stranger is the vivid Elsa, roughly her age with a BB-gun. They spend the next 24 hours together, defining the years of their youth and getting to know each other "well enough" to make decisions that will last forever.
