ESCENA. Oslo Ibero-amerikanske filmdager 2021
Shy 13-year-old Irene feels invisible to the world around her. But when she discovers her charismatic father’s secret life, Irene begins a new life herself, befriending another young Irene, discovering her sexuality and slowly coming into her own in this sly and engrossing drama rich with detail and unexpected turns.
Two astonishing young actresses delivery wonderful performances in this coming-of-age opera prima that has received international acclaim.
This event is organized with support of the Embassy of Brazil in Oslo
ESCENA. Oslo Ibero-amerikanske filmdager is a platform for cultural exchange between Norway and the Ibero-American region.
ESCENA 21 will present 10 films with wide international recognition of great directors and filmmakers from 7 different countries. Some films will show a realistic portrait of a social and cultural reality, while others take a more magical or even surreal approach.
This year’s edition aims to bring forward the diversity of the Ibero-American cultures: from underground comic book authors to indigenous cultures, from LGTBQ+ rights to elite panic and from the reclaiming of ethnic identity to the life of the elderly.
Accompanying the film program, there will be additional events that will provide an appropriate context for the films, such as conversation with the filmmakers, dance performances and round tables in collaboration with other associations.
