Interview with the artist

About the film

As the residential cruise ship 'The World' sails by Lofoten, climate revolutionaries Amelia (14) and Steven (12) hijack the ship as part of their plan to eliminate what they consider to be society's worst enemy: ignorant adults.

About the filmmaker

Trygve Luktvasslimo (b. 1978) is a Norwegian artist based in Valberg, Lofoten. He writes screenplays and directs, sometimes makes music and sews costumes, and he often plays in his own films. In a fine balance between seriousness and comedy, Luktvasslimo's work deals with the exploration of existential concepts and people's eternal quest for the meaning in life.

About Kunstnernes Hus Home Cinema

Kunstnernes Hus Cinema is closed until further notice. But we intend to continue supporting both Norwegian and international filmmakers through making their films available to our public. We're therefore thrilled to launch Kunstnernes Hus Home Cinema.

This is how it works: a new film will be available for viewing on our website each Wednesday at 6pm. The films chosen are either movies shown at our cinema or a work by a filmmaker that will come to visit us later in the year, to familiarise the audience with his or her practice. Each film will be available for a week. In addition, short interviews will be published, where filmmakers talk more about their film as well as their experience of this peculiar time.

Kunstnernes Hus Home Cinema is free for everybody. Should you want to support us, our team, the filmmaker or the artist, feel free to become a member of Kunstnernes Hus or vipps us any amount that you like (Vipps: 563558).

Thank you and happy watching!
