Urban Lab Films: Oslo, August 31st

Urban Lab Films host a screening of the critically-acclaimed Oslo, August 31st (2011) at the Institute of Contemporary Arts as part of the programme for the first Architecture Film Festival London.

Tickets are now on sale from the ICA box office.

Filmmakers Joachim Trier (Director) and Eskil Vogt (Writer) will be in discussion with Dr Claire Thomson (UCL Scandinavian Studies) following the screening.

Based on the duration of a single day, Oslo, August 31st follows Anders, a recovering drug addict, through the city where he grew up. Intending to get his life back on track, Anders visits an old friend and goes to a job interview, recognising how the world has moved on without him. Focusing on his body, his experiences and health issues, the city is explored as small pockets of intimate spaces, forming a sensitive and final goodbye with a place and its people.

Screening kindly supported by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in London.
