Last year, about 40.000 people were killed by guns in the United States. No other modern industrial country comes close to this number. Yet many Americans still love their guns. Why? What can be done to control the murder and mayhem they cause in the United States?
For answers, come to Robert Mikkelsen’s lecture on this topic. The lecture will be in English, and all students and employees are welcome.
Associate professor at Faculty of Economics, Languages and Social Sciences Rania Maktabi, has invited film director Frøydis Fosslie Moe to the library at Remmen, to lecture about film and politics, and how she conveys political messages through visual mediums.
Frøydis Fossli Moe is a young feminist female director from Oslo, Norway. Coming from a wide political background she is trying to make taboo films about gender, inequality and politics. She got her degree in international development studies from studying in Oslo, Nicaragua, England and India. She finished her master’s degree in film directing from Screen Academy Scotland in 2018 and since then she has been working on mutable films such as “My Sister’s Rose”, “Man Made”, “River view” and more. Now she is working in post-production with a film called “The day after” as a part of Mediefabrikken’s talent workshop for female young directors in Oslo. Visually she loves handheld camera, colours and fast dialogue. And her dream is to try to change the world through cinema.
This session will contain a lecture on how and why the film “My Sister`s Rose” was made, the screening of the actual film, a conversation between Rania and Frøydis, and questions and answers from the audience.
