Having recently lost her sight, Ingrid retreats to the safety of her home, a place where she can feel in control, alone with her husband and her thoughts. However, Ingrid’s real problems do not lurk beyond the walls of her apartment, but lie within – and her deepest fears and repressed fantasies soon take over.
Jury motivation: Eskil Vogt is known for his collaborations on manuscripts with Joachim Trier. His debut as director of a full-length feature film is a strikingly original, daring and funny film about a blind woman’s imagination. Ellen Dorrit Petersen gives a brilliant performance as a devil-may-care woman who isolates herself after losing her sight. Using her computer, she writes about two characters whose solitary existences mirror her own.
Vogt’s remarkable script has been transformed into a playful, challenging and visually gorgeous film, which offers a uniquely sensitive reflection on humanity.
