Mariken Halle chose to shoot a school film about how chance passersby would imagine a movie that they would want to star in. A lighthearted school exercise ends as a disturbing mystery with a Lynch-esque open ending.... This noteworthy debut offers a sophisticated contemplation of the ways to transcend the border between documentary reality and fiction. It makes use of both passersby and professional actors.


Synopsis

Mariken Halle first asked around her neighborhood if she might make a school film about one of her neighbors. When that didn’t work, she and her small film crew began addressing people on the streets of Göteborg. How would they imagine a movie that they would want to star in? The results were far from fantastic – she encountered dismissively amused responses and boring, confused ideas. But some of the people she talked to were different. They try getting into their "life role” – and she begins to direct them.... This lighthearted school exercise ends as a disturbing mystery with a Lynch-esque open ending. Halle’s noteworthy graduation film offers a sophisticated contemplation of the ways to transcend the border between documentary reality and fiction. In doing so it makes use of both passersby and professional actors who play passersby.

About the director

Mariken Halle (b. 1982, Oslo) started out as an actress, but while working in the theater, she took an interest in film direction and began to experiment with the relationship between film fiction and the documentation of the acting process. She shot several successful short films that prefigured her feature debut by highlighting certain common motifs (Trygve with His Heart in the Mailbox – 2004, Humming Your Song – 2005). In 2010 she finished up studies in direction at Göteborg University with Maybe Tomorrow (Kanske i morgon, 2011), a feature movie that provoked immediate interest. Mariken Halle has been awarded the Golden Film Dragon from the Göteborg International Film Festival.
