Join South Social Film Festival for an immersive journey into the Nordic countries, with a day of regional independent cinema, music and drinks all under one roof at the Riverside studios on Saturday 2nd April, 2022
Together we will discover Europe’s best kept secret, adrift in the rhythmic North Atlantic OCEAN, the Faroe Islands. They are 18 volcanic ISLANDS located between Iceland, Norway and the UK. They may be small, but they’re producing compelling cinema. Sharing the love for landscape, nature and sweeping passion is Finland, the second country we explore at Nordic Focus.
At 3pm will premiere two Faroese films, the first, a timeless short film inspired by true events and winner of 44 international awards, Trøllabeiggi (Brother Troll) by Gudmund Helmsdal. The second, SKÁL by Cecilie Debell and Marie Tórgarð, a debut film and topical documentary about growing up in the Faroe Islands between hip hop and religion.
At 7pm you'll be treated to a Nordic Cocktail accompanied by the talented Faroese duo of Trygvi Danielsen, hip hop artist and Dania O. Tausen, poet and singer, protagonists of SKÁL.
At 8pm we have a sneak preview dedicated to Finland, COMPARTMENT No 6 by Juho Kuosmanen. Winner of the Grand Prix in Cannes last year, the film is a wild journey into our deeper selves.
NORDIC FOCUS is supported by the Representation of the Faroe Islands, the Faroese Film Institute, Film Hub London, Film London and BFI FAN and promoted by the Embassy of Finland. We stand with Ukraine.
