Voices

A man wakes from uneasy sleep, disturbed by the door dog of evil chance at his gate. A nightmarish and strangely familiar scene returns to haunt him yet again.

TECHNICAL NOTE: VOICES was shot in June 1990, edited and released briefly for screening at the Grimstad Short Film Festival in 1991. The film was deemed unfinished and shelved until January 2017, when the original 35mm print was scanned and digitized to 4K. It was graded in 2018 and completed as a new digital film in 2020, adding new sound elements and dialogue recorded in June 1990 and April 2020.

Director Statement

I aim to make films that channel both material and inner worlds. Voices presents a seemingly realistic film world, which is in fact mostly mental.
