Harstad Kino Sal 1
Welcome to live music, pricewinning long film and a short film especially made for AMIFF 2018!
The theme of AMIFF 2018 is «Periferies», and several of the films deals with people who stand outside the norm in our society. Therefore, we have chosen the winner of Sundance Filmfestival, the American indie film «The Miseducation of Cameron Post», as the opening film. The film is powerful, fun and warm, and is about the lesbian teen Cameron (Chloë Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass)) who get sent away to a «pray the gay away» camp. At the camp she allies with two other misfits; Adam, who is not bound to the idea of one sex and a girl who calls herself «Jane Fonda». (Director: Desiree Akhavan, USA 2018, 1 t 30 min) Age limit: 12 år
At the opening event the short film «Tander» will be premiered. It is commisioned by AMIFF and it’s made my artist Hedda Bremseth. «Tander» deals with internet dating in Northern Norway, and it is shot locally.
The film music is by Erling Ramskjell, and he will perform live at the opening event. Ramskjell is a northern Norwegian singer/songwriter.
