PRIZE TO EGIL HÅSKJOLD LARSEN AND THE FRITT-ORD SUPPORTED DOCUMENTARY FILM "69 MINUTES OF 86 DAYS"

The documentary film festival 'Hot Docs' paid tribute to Egil Håskjold Larsen last week. The Norwegian director was awarded the "Emerging International Filmmaker Award" for the film 69 minutes of 86 days, which follows three-year-old Lean and her family as they flee through an unsafe Europe. At a slow, lingering pace, the film shows the refugee crisis from a child's perspective.

This was Egil Håskjold Larsen's first full-length documentary film, and he is responsible for directing, photography and film editing. The film was produced by Tone Grøttjord-Glenne for Sant & Usant AS. The score for the film was composed by Bugge Wesseltoft. The Fritt Ord Foundation has granted NOK 235 000 in support for the project.
