Tweetable Logline: A short documentary on Northern Europe’s highest-lying mountain village,
where wood is chopped for fire and deer is hunted for dinner.
Elevator Pitch: How do you think you’d like it in Northern Europe’s highest-lying village, surrounded by mountains as far as the eye can see, but
nothing else? If a petrol station and a grocery store is all you have in
close proximity, and a maximum of five hours of daylight each day, what
do you think you’d do with your time?
That is what my film is about: a portrait of the people in that town.
Director/Producer: Emilie Norenberg
Cinematographer: Sirus F. Gahan
Sound: Olly Gale
Editor: Jesse Nash
About the Production:
The Norwegian mountain village of Skåbu is one of the most beautiful
places on earth, and it’s where I’ve spent every winter since I was a
child. Having grown up in a city, where life seems to spiral out of
control, I’ve always wondered how it is to live in such a remote place,
surrounded by stunning nature, but not much else. What do the people do
with their time? How are the inhabitants affected by the things going on
in the world? That is what I’d like to find out.
