The Case by Cecilia Stenbom, Rearranged Ewa Gorzna and Psychedelic Alphabet for the Newborn by Sami Sänpäkkilä have been selected to The Nordic Competition at The 27th Minimalen Short Film Festival during April 22 – 26, 2015. Minimalen is an annual, independent short film event based in the old town of Trondheim, Norway, since 1988.
The Case by Stenbom looks at how crime fiction prey and perpetuate anxieties whilst being a source of entertainment. The dialogue and voice over segments in the film are reenactments from a series of transcribed recordings with the general public about perception of crime.
Gorzna’s Rearranged is a calmly flowing journey through the space submitted to an unexpected transformation. It reveals a surreal moment when the wild enters the conventional rearranging the established order according to unrestrained turbulent rules.
Psychedelic Alphabet for the Newborn by Sänpäkkilä is a video about the life of a new born baby. Life is beauty, violence, comfort, danger and lipstick. Even for the newborn.
