Anders Emblem

A Human Position

Edition 2022
78' - 2022 - Drama - Dialogue: Norwegian
Director: Anders Emblem Composer: Eirik Slinning Korsnes With: Amalie Ibsen Jensen, Maria Agwumaro
In a society where happiness suddenly becomes precarious, a young woman searches for her purpose as a journalist and her place as a human being. Apparent simplicity graces this Norwegian summer portrait.
Asta tries to find meaning and a sense of place in the coastal town in Western Norway where she works as a journalist. As she attempts to uncover the truth behind the disappearance of an asylum seeker, her personal life and her views on justice are affected.
“A pensive, sylph-like mood piece, lit in the wistful blues of the long Nordic summer nights, the second feature from Anders Emblem follows journalist Asta as she pursues the story of an Afghan asylum seeker and, at the same time, comes to terms with her own unspoken recent trauma.” - Screen Daily
