Bjørn Melhus I Spotlight – In Person

  • , Filmmuseum 76 min Ticket

In The Magic Glass, a blank television screen shows the reflection of a female version of the director, failing to make real contact. Subsequently, a faceless lecturer recounts the influences of the director’s videos. In Far Far Away, Melhus deconstructs the fairy tale The Wizard of Oz: His Dorothy stays stuck in a loop of projections. We also hear Judy Garland’s angelic voice in Afterlife, singing a hymn to Kennedy on the occasion of his assassination. Finally, we find soldiers returning to an inhospitable Germany; a tragicomic parallel version of Vietnam veterans. (bbu)
