Burlesque and carnivorous satire

Regissør: Robin Jensen

SUNDANCE CURRENT SHORT FILM / The short Norwegian animated film Farse is a grotesque, unrestrained and entertaining satire of the modern day decadence and decadence.


The ten minute Norwegian animation film Pranks won the Grimstad Terje Vigen Prize (which is regarded as the festival's prestigious «second prize») at last year's Short Film Festival and was also awarded with the Fredrikstad Animation Festival's prize for the best Nordic-Baltic Short Film. Now it has been selected for the short film program at the important Sundance Film Festival in the United States, starting January 23.

The film's exemplary «tagline» reads as follows: A man, a woman and a meat grinder. Love is bloody serious. And where it's usually just called "a movie by", it says at the beginning Pranks that it's "a terrible movie by Robin Jensen". The film, which is produced by the company Microfilm, holds absolutely what it promises in that way – well to note when it comes to content, not quality.

Decadent environment

Admittedly, it all starts out pretty innocent where we meet a male reindeerherder who falls in love with distance. . .
