Another three docs to round off my festival:
Det Røde Eplet – Vanja Larsen/Fredrik Nielsen
Great observational doco on the junkies and former junkies that are attached to the street-mag “=Fredrikstad”. Very effectively presented in Black and White – a great insight into the struggles of people caught in the heroin subculture.
Forest of the Dancing Spirits - Linda Västrik
Amazing Anthropological footage from the life in a pygmy village in the Congo 2004-12.
No Word For Worry – Runar Jarle Wiik
Well presented and beautifully shot doco on the last of the Moken – a people that live on boats around the islands on the Thai/Burma border.
It has been great to immerse myself in documentaries for a few days and to meet some Norwegian doco makers and hear how they produce and fund docos here. Here are some of the interesting people that I met and intend to stay in contact with:
Runar Jarle Wiik - http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0927916/
Ellen Astri Lundby - http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2851422/
Maida Hals - http://www.imdb.com/name/nm6175259/
