The Norwegian Consulate General is excited to introduce a Norwegian Documentary Series in collaboration with the non-profit movie theater 14 Pews and the Norwegian Film Institute. A total of four Norwegian-produced documentaries compiled together by 14 Pews’ very own Cressandra Thibodeaux will be screened throughout September. Norwegian documentaries have a very visible spot in international documentary festivals and have been praised for their innovative narration and dialogue with the audience. Together with 14 Pews we are proud to screen four of them, all award-winning documentaries followed by a talk-back after each screening.
14 Pews is a non-profit independent and multidisciplinary movie theater screening independent films, documentaries and short films located in The Heights and is in fact housed in a former church.

Attendance is completely FREE OF CHARGE and complimentary beer
sponsored by Saint Arnolds Brewing Company will be offered.

The talk-back will be moderated by former Consul General of Norway, Lasse Seim. Click here to reserve tickets free of charge.

SYNOPSIS
T
he siblings Magnar and Oddny never left their childhood home. They run the family farm as it was run by several generations before them. Time seems to be standing still, while it runs out. “Siblings are Forever” is a warm and poetic documentary about a brother-and-sister couple, Magnar (73) and Oddny (70) who live like many Norwegians did 50 years ago. Far from wealthy but close to the nature surrounding them.
