TROND KVIG ANDREASSEN, “NEIGHBOURS”
Trond Kevin Andreason speaks with Jean McGlothlin, SDFF co-Director and programmer, about his documentary, Neighbors, and the unexpected, widespread relevance it has taken on as the coronavirus pandemic has driven people into relative physical isolation and made in-person social interactions increasingly rare.
A woman is found dead in her apartment in the middle of Oslo. She’s been dead for more than a month. No next of kin, friends, or family. How do you remember someone no one knew? The film explores how an anonymous life still leaves an imprint, even if it’s led without much contact with other people in the middle of a city. How do her neighbours remember her? As the story unfolds, the film explores how an anonymous life leaves an imprint with little mysteries that may never be fully explained.
