Febiofest will include the Northern Lights section for the second time

Silent Heart

After the audience hits of the retrospective selections of the cinemas of Norway, Denmark, Sweden, and Finland, Febiofest will include the Northern Lights section in its program for the second time. Bille August depicted the topic of euthanasia in Silent Heart with dignity, and the excellent Danish actress, Paprika Steen, was awarded in San Sebastian for her performance in the leading role. Rockers, as the main protagonists, appear in two films – in Pernilla Fischer Christensen's Someone You Love, an ageing musician gets the opportunity to make up all that he has missed to his family because of his career. On the other hand, Itsi Bitsi is based on reality – the main protagonist, Eik, is a famous character of the Copenhagen music scene of the raging 1960s, with all that it included – the sexual revolution, meditations in exotic countries, up to the final devastation by drugs. 

Northern Lights also focuses its attention on Norway, offering a slightly crazy comedy, 1001 Grams by Bent Hamer; Erik Poppe, a former war photographer, bases A Thousand Times Goodnight on his own experiences. The stories of Iraqi immigrants living in a Norwegian refugee camp comprise the plot of Letter to the King by Hisham Zaman, a director of Kurdish origin. A sick woman, who decides to undergo psychotherapy under the influence of LSD before her death, is the main character of The Quiet Roar by a new Swedish talent, Henrik Hellström. The viewers can travel all the way to Iceland with a police drama, Brave Men's Blood. In his latest opus, I Won't Come Back, Ilmar Raag explores the road movie genre in a story about young Anya fleeing across Russia.
