SUMMER IN THE CITY / SOMMERMORGEN
A group of young people are heading home in the wee hours of the morning to have an after party. A neighbour is not too happy about this, but things aren’t necessarily what we think. This short movie is one part of a four part movie that was aired in the cinemas.

"This is a script I wrote based on a story a friend told me. I wrote it as fiction. «Summermorning" became part of a long- playing film shown in cinema with three other short films - all made by women. It was called ‘Syndig Sommer’.
It was also shown as a pre-film for the screening of, “Leaving Las Vegas” with Nicholas Cage. The photographer, Gaute Gunnari, and I had a blast making the storyboard. The rest of the film was just as enjoyable, and it became one of the few films I have made that the short film festival in Grimstad played - which was so nice:-) In a festival in France, they did not understand the concept of the film because, to them, the film seemed to take place during the day. I forgot that it is only in the northern countries that we have the understanding of midnight sun.
I loved doing a fiction. But the freedom in making documentaries attracted me more."
