    A Return

    James Edmonds simply interweaves two 16mm reels, one shot in Berlin when he was working with Mr. Beavers on the restoration of Markopoulos' Eniaios, and the other was shot while James was returning to his village in the south of England. The coalescence of these dainty geographies and homogeneous atmospheres in A RETURN has ultimately translated into six minutes of mellifluous ciné-poetry.

    Erik Poppe's UTØYA 22 JULI aka U - JULY 22 is an incredibly intense re-enactment of the Utøya island massacre. The entire tragedy is captured in a 72 minute handheld real-time single take by DP Martin Otterbeck, which is exactly the duration of the 2011 Norwegian attacks. His shaky camerawork is very absorbing. The sound design is multidimensional. Each gunshot literally amps up the trauma. One of the most immersive movie experiences in recent times, since Chris Nolan's Dunkirk.
