Full of Fire directed by Marit Ostberg
Wonderfully shot, totally intriguing, a short film that also serves as a music video, Full of Fire, for The Knife. Director Marit Ostberg writes about the narrative:
“The film ‘Full of Fire’ started to grow as an embryo in the song´s lines ‘Who looks after my story’. Who takes care of our stories when the big history, written by straight rich white men, erase the complexity of human´s lives, desires and conditions? The film ‘Full of Fire’ consists of a network of fates, fears, cravings, longings, losses, and promises. Fates that at first sight seem isolated from each other, but if we pay attention, we can see that everything essentially moves into each other. Our lives are intertwined and our eyes on each other, our sounds and smells, mean something. Our actions create reality, we create each other. We are never faceless, not even in the most grey anonymous streets of the city. We will never stop being responsible, being extensions, of one another. We will never stop longing for each other, and for something else.”

Following on from our profile of Kristoffer Borgli last week here is Kristoffer’s warm, funny doco-film about Marius Solem Johansen, a small town musician who produces dance videos and drug recipes for YouTube – true inspiration for Todd Terje’s track Inspector Norse.
