NORDEN - the nordic arts festival

Nordische Filmtage Lübeck

Lübeck's film festival is one of Germany's most renowned cinema events and the most important event for Scandinavian film. Alongside the feature film "Woman At War“, NORDEN festival will present these three short films from the program of the 60th edition of Nordische Filmtage at its open air.

GIMIMAS (My Birth)

Animation film by Eglė Mameniškytė, 3 minutes, Lithuania, 2017, sans dialogue

Blurred contours, sounds – and what the imagination makes of these. Classy animation feature that deals with fear in the forest at night, fear of its inhabitants, and fear of the deep black darkness. A place that the director has always feared herself. 


KVIST (Zweig)

Feature film by Det sporadiske filmkollektivet, 3 minutes, Norway, 2018, original with English subtitles

Nader has suggested a date in the forest. Usually he goes hiking by himself and the way his behavior affects others remains hidden behind his back. Well played persiflage on human - and male - arrogance. 


Döda Farmor (Oma töten)

Feature film by Lars Vega Persson, 21 minutes, Sweden 2017, original with English subtitles

80-year-old Ingrid wants to end her life. When her granddaughter Anna and her friend Siri find her farewell letter, they decide to assist her. The two girls that are addicted to Egoshooter actually just want to train for the Quakecon tournament, but when the first suicide attempt fails, they become creative and think of ways to send Ingrid to kingdom come.
