When?

22. 11. 2017 – 30. 11. 2017

The 8th season of the multi-genre Nordic Days festival will present the art genres, such as fantasy, sci-fi, dystopia, magic realism or horror, in a typically Nordic way.

 

The festival opens with Qaqqat Alanngui, a Greenlandic horror movie which sets the usual plot in an exotic environment. A Swedish parody of the sci-fi genre, called Kenny begins, and Astrópia, an Icelandic film inspired by role playing and geek culture, will also be screened. The plot of The Bothersome Man, a Kafkaesque Norwegian dystopia in which the main character is desperately trying to escape his seemingly perfect life, will make you lose your sleep easily.
