Midnight Sun: Film and Video from the North

Midnight Sun: Film and Video from the North

7 March – 18 April 2012 | GOMA Cinema
Free Admission

Midnight Sun: Film and Video from the North brings together a wide-ranging selection of film and video by contemporary Nordic filmmakers and artists. The program highlights some of the most engaging and unconventional work to have emerged during the last decade from filmmakers who have come to prominence for their off-beat humour, arresting cinematography and psychological subject matter.

Midnight Sun also includes: Coldsweat: Scandinavian Horror – a series of late-night screenings of Scandinavian horror; and The Millennium Trilogy – films based on the bestselling novels by Stieg Larsson. 

Program film notes are abridged with sources as indicated. This program would not have been possible without the assistance of the Danish Film Institute, The Finnish Film Foundation, Icelandic Film Centre, Norwegian Film Institute, Swedish Film Institute, and the artists and representing agents who have generously provided materials.
