We had an interesting conversation with director Itonje Søimer Guttormsen about her debut film GRITT. On March 10 at 8pm (Berlin time).
The artist Gritt is struggling for belonging in an unwelcoming society, but then she undergoes a radicalisation process in the name of art.
"Gritt is a commentary on the exploitative and commercial nature of the arts industry. It also questions the responsibility of collaborative creativity through Gritt’s attempt (and failure) to work creatively with a local group of asylum seekers, using their experiences (lives, vulnerabilities, traumas) to tell an ‘important’ and moving story." - Tara Judah, Ubiquarian
