The grandmother of the young filmmaker Anine Wiesner Barg has Alzheimer’s. With a desire to portray the lively, musical grandmother before she loses herself, Anine tries to remind her of who she is. Norwegian documentary from 2019.
The film about grandmother won the prize for this year’s short documentary during BIFF (Bergen International Film Festival) 2019. It was later sold to VG TV (Norway).
Through a labyrinth of endless corridors behind closed doors, we follow a group of dancers who each in their own way express different forms of mental challenges. The short film “Isolation” (working title) addresses the topic of mental health among young people and young adults.
I have been working on the music for this short film a while as it is the first element that must be in place before the dancers make their choreography. Cant wait to tell more about this project.
