LSFF: Retrospective: Joern Utkilen Double Bill

9 Jan 2016

Joern Utkilen join us for a Q&A following the screenings.

Norwegian-born Joern Utkilen graduated from both the Edinburgh College of Art and Screen Academy Scotland and has gone on to write and direct a range of films, many funded by the UK Film Council, Film4, Creative Scotland and the Norwegian Film Institute. 

The stark aesthetic and disturbing comedy of his work draws on characters that are on the margins of society, both as outsiders and in geographically remote areas of Scotland and Norway.


A new documentary on Arvid Sletta, a Norwegian 'outsider' musician who has written soundtracks for Joern's work, alongside his most recent short fiction.
