Social Social Meets Norway to take place next month

This year’s Social Social Film Festival will celebrate Norway, with a mix of movies, music and food!

The event will feature a special preview of Going West by director Henrik Martin Dahlsbakken. Although Dahlsbakken is only 27 he has already released 3 successful feature films in the last 2 years, winning multi awards in the process and even being shortlisted as the Norwegian Oscar candidate for best foreign film! The director and the main lead, Ingar Helge Gimle will be present for the Q&A.

Going West is a dramedy, based on a son taking his estranged transgender father on a road trip to the west coast of Norway. A warm and touching story about life, loss and love. Dahlsbakken delicatly navigates the tricky territory between deadpan humour and pathos. GOING WEST is a delighful family road movie, in which the protagonists’ realise it’s not the objective that matters – it’s who they share their journey with that does.

Live music with the rising Norwegian R ’n’ B artist, Farida Bolseth Benounis, and an authenthic smörgåsbord will come from the Nordic superfood hub, Scandikitchen. www.scandikitchen.co.uk

Melli explains the thinking behind the events:South Social Film Festival is a showcase for cross-cultural diversity showing films that will shock, enlighten, inspire and entertain the expat groups based in South London. Now in our fourth year we’re going from strength to strength. Other events this year include South Social Meets Palestine on June 9 and South Social Meets Japan on September 22.
