SATURDAY 10/30, 8:40 PM (SESSION 21)

Director: Håvard Fossum
Producers:
Ingvil Giske

Description:

From a Kafkaesque office for social media in Germany and a South Sudan military headquarters, to conversations with an Iranian Ayatollah and Chinese news editors. Norwegian filmmaker Håvard Fossum intimately follows the daily working lives of the censors. With remarkable access to a secretive world, we get a rare insight into the ways information is controlled, from the Communist Party in Beijing to the corridors of power in Washington. Hearing the word censorship makes us cringe, but is it a misunderstood idea? If there's one thing the censors have in common, it's that they’re all convinced they’re working for a good cause. At once laugh-out-loud funny, deeply shocking and thought-provoking, this timely and intelligent doc will stay with you long after you watch it.

Biography:

Håvard Fossum
with a background in journalism, anthropology and art, Norwegian filmmaker and cinematographer Håvard Fossum makes documentaries that mix approaches and play with conventions of truth and objectivity. Often political in theme, but darkly funny in tone, his films have ranged from satires to investigative stories, been broadcasted and competed in festivals such as CPH:DOX, Sheffield Doc/Fest, Ji.hlava and Winterthur.

Ingvil Giske has more than 10 years experience as director and producer of documentaries, shorts and animation-films (Tongue Cutters, Dugma: The Button). Ingvil joined Medieoperatørene, an independent production company that has produced award-winning documentaries, short films and television programmes, in 2011.
