Om GAMES THEY PLAY
I det moderne, post-industrielle samfunnet fortoner livet seg ofte som et skuespill. Mennesker spiller om kjærlighet og sorg, makt, status og identitet. Og noen ganger spiller vi bare for gøy. Kortfilmprogrammet FILMS FROM THE NORTH: GAMES PEOPLE PLAY tar for seg dette på både morsomt og dramatisk vis.   

De fem filmene i programmet har til felles at de utforsker hvordan vi mennesker interagerer, konkurrerer og kommuniserer med hverandre – gjennom språk, mimikk og retorikk. Av og til ropes alt høyt og tydelig, mens i andre tilfeller ligger all kommunikasjon under overflaten. Karakterene vi møter blir alle konfrontert og utfordret i ulike sammenhenger.

About GAMES THEY PLAY
In the modern, post-industrial society life often seems like a play. People act in mysterious ways regarding love and sorrow, power, status and identity. And sometimes we just act up for fun. Short film programme FILMS FROM THE NORTH: GAMES PEOPLE PLAY addresses this both with drama and humour.

The five films in the program have in common that they explore how humans interact, compete and communicate with each other - through language, gestures and rhetoric. Occasionally things get shouted loud and clear, while in other cases all communications is under the surface. The characters we meet are all confronted and challenged in different contexts.
