FORESTILLINGER



MIRAGE is the new international film festival in Oslo dedicated to the art of cinema.

COURTESY OF THE RUMOHR ESTATE

Director: Paul Tunge

The Norwegian painter Knut Rumohr (1916-2002) was born on the Frønningen estate, one of the largest in Western Norway. He became a pioneer in abstract art, best known for his paintings and graphic work. Knut Rumohr was a man who let the pictures speak for themselves. He believed in abstract painting, as lifelike landscapes could not be recreated better than the landscape itself. This is his journey.

THE DISCOVERER OF THE DISCOVERERS

Director: C. S. Nicholson

A family in the West African republic of Benin re-tell their version of their ancestors’ first encounter with Europeans — to a European film crew. We are told how the hunter Kpatè first eyed a Portuguese ship off the Atlantic coast in 1548, and how he induced them to make landfall. We are allowed a peek into how this encounter is still remembered, ritually, and get to hear some perhaps astonishing views on this turning point in history. But do all the claims about the historic event bear a closer look? To which degree can we trust the filmmaker’s white gaze? And how do the characters and the film crew relate to one another, 500 years after the onset of the Atlantic Slave Trade, colonialism and globalism? This short documentary gives a glimpse into the way in which history is storytelling, and how pride and conscience may affect collective memories.
