Kosmorama is hosting an early screening of the documentary film Ibelin on Tuesday, March 5th, and director producer and winner of this years Edith Carlmar award Ingvil Giske as well as researcher Beate Wold Hygen will attend the screening for a discussion led by Adresseavisen's Anne Dorte Lunås.

The documentary film Ibelin has deeply moved audiences and has already garnered numerous awards. Director Benjamin Ree has been working on the documentary about Mats Steen, the World of Warcraft player born with a muscle disease who passed away at just 25 years old, for several years. "The story of the gamer whom parents thought died alone but found his community in video games is one of several examples of world-class Norwegian documentaries at the moment," wrote Adresseavisen's film critic Terje Eidsvåg.

How did Ingvil Giske work on the film? What impacted her? And what did she learn from making the film about Mats and his online world? Gaming researcher Beate Wold Hygen from NTNU Social Research also participates in the conversation. From being almost disregarded at parent meetings, she overnight received greater interest when discussing video games - after Mats' story became known.

*Director Benjamin Ree is unfortunately unable to participate in the conversation.
