Murmansk/Kirkenes - Production

Murmansk/Kirkenes is a cross-over feature fiction film and art installation by Knut Åsdam set in the northern Schengen border areas of Norway and Russia. The only place where western Europe and Russia have a direct border.

The project is made possible by funding from the Norwegian Film Fund, Fritt Ord and the Audio and Visual Fund, and will premiere in the Barents Region in 2016, and continue to be screened and exhibited world wide at major institutions.



Oslo Pilot

Knut is on the edvisary board for the new Oslo Pilot Magazine for the concept of the "Public", and also the magazine on the concept of "Poetry. Two of four concepts end editions of the magazines.
The magazine will act as a public space for reflection and debate and as a medium for research and archiving, creating opportunities for re-reading (in English and Norwegian) previously published essays, articles and art works. At the same time, it will provide a platform for new work and research outcomes arising from the four areas of research.

Tweed/Hebrides - Pre-Production

Knut Åsdam is developing a fiction film and multi-chapter, multi-room installation that can be put indoors or outdoors, set on the isles of the Outer Hebrides.

The film addresses how we relate to their identities and environment moving between economic and cultural periphery and centre. Tweed will be a poetic ‘content vehicle’ to bring issues of class, gender and identity into a narrative exploring societies of periphery and centre in an European context.

The film will be going into production in 2016 and will premiere in the Hebrides in 2017, and continue to be screened and exhibited world wide at major institutions..
