A playful, amazing and very disturbing Norwegian documentary, False Belief, got into the prestigious Berlinale's new innovative program Forum Expanded last February. The fact that the film got its premiere just now, however, was not an obvious one. A hectic run with the completion of post production while using all the ingenuity to raise enough for final funding, was made possible thanks to the very experienced team players behind the film; story editor and producer Ingebjørg Torgersen, editor Zayne Amstrong, sound designer Svenn Jacobsen and director Mikael Damstuen Brkic. How tight the film produced via FABB001 has been about not being finalized is telling of the current support systems and distribution platform priorities. The feat is great, but is overshadowed by the appalling persecution revealed. The film is desperately looking for answers, but is capable of providing a slant at the surreally dangerous situation it describes.
This type of film is rarely a commodity in all of them. . .
