Kosmorama is in week 10, the same week as the International Women’s day. 8th of March. We celebrate the whole week with female directors, stories and strong female roles and a competition program with a historically high share of females.
This year we can choose amongst films such as the Oscar nominated “Hidden Figures, which tells the important story of a team of African-American women mathematicians who served a vital role in NASA during the early years of the US space program. On the premiere, we meet our own space program women, Eli Britt Danielsen and Irene Karoliussen from CIRiS – Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Space. They will give us an introduction on the history of women working in space programs. The same night we celebrate the premier of “Sami blood”, with director Amanda Kernell and reindeer herder Lena Cecilie Sparrok. This powerful feature follows a teenage Sámi girl in the 1930s who is forcibly removed from her family and sent to a state boarding school that is intended to raise its Indigenous to a level of “acceptable” to the rest of the Swedish society.
We kick off Friday morning the 10th 09:30 with the Israeli/ French film “In Between”, addressing the topics of religion, sexuality, equality and independence for three Palestinian women living in the heart of Tel Aviv. This morning we meet the actors Shaden Kanboura and Henry Andrawes from the film in conversation with journalist and film creator Monica Csango. Friday night we celebrate the 30 years’ jubilee of Dirty Dancing, before we put on our dancing shoes together with DocLounge, Northern Lights and DJ Juri Gagarin at Kunsthall Trondheim. As we say from the film Dirty Dancing: “Nobody puts Baby in a corner.”
