Screening times are Thursday- Sunday at 5pm & 7pm (Thursday also 9pm). Doors will open 15 minutes prior, and the full program will take 35 minutes. Please find a day and time in your schedule, and we’re looking forward to share these moving images with you.

She has a background from painting and filmmaking, with a MA in Fine Art from Bergen Academy of Art and Design (2016) and Film and Video Art from China Academy of Fine Arts (2011). Her recent video works deals with the conflict between the traditional roles for women, carried on from generation to generation, and the growing contemporary feminism amongst young women in China today. Her work has been exhibited in China, Norway, and Russia. Her first solo exhibition ‘Life Tells Lies’ took place at NoPlace (2017) and received great reviews in Morgenbladet, Klassekampen, Dagbladet and Kunstkritikk.
