Sofia, en sommer (Sofia, last summer)
Short film, 2021.
Winner of the Norwegian Film Critic's Award at the Norwegian Film Festival 2021.
Jury statement: In a poetic and credible way, this year’s winner hits our contemporary culture on the spot, as it thematizes grief and young, female solitude. Without getting too obvious, the story develops with multiple layers and sticks with us. The camera focuses on the female main character, that is played with an unusual authenticity and sensibility – a first class acting effort. By the art of suggestion tragedy and hope are drawn up for us. Through a meeting with another outsider, the main character can glimpse the summer light again.
