Scandinavia 2018

March 29 at 7 and 9 pm in the Lviv Palace of Arts a special selection of short films from Wiz-Art – SCANDINAVIA!

In Scandinavian countries, it is often cold and frowning, but Scandinavian hearts compensate it – they are hot and magnetic.

Deep into themselves, inspired by surrounding landscapes, they create not only cinema, but moving image that goes deeply into your soul. At the same time those are ironic and funny stories that show the everyday life in all its simplicity.

Tickets online on TicketClub or at CoMMuna.

RETRETT 30’ Itonje Søimer Guttormsen, Norway 2016

The roving Gritt fights the exhausting battle of establishing her ideas into practice as an autodidact performance artist arriving the capital of the self acclaimed winners of the world lottery. We follow her during her first weeks 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.

Earth-shaking films only!
