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.
