COMING UP: A SHORT FILM ABOUT DREAMING OF A BETTER LIFE - FROM DIRECTOR FARZAD SAMSAMI AND THE PRODUCTION COMPANY BLINKFILM. THE YOUNG BOY FOAD IS LIVING IN A COASTAL TOWN IN MOROCCO.
We get a glimpse of how he manages to make a living in the slow-motion of an opening sequence. In the warm and sandy landscape, beautifully depicted by photographer Philip Øgaard, a bunch of men in all ages including Foad are running. They are running after a white bus filled with tourists, trying to sell their treasures (not exactly artefacts) to the wealthy whites. One day Foad gets a business idea and he teams up with "the Norwegian guy who has become fat, and not yet returned to his homeland". The man’s name is Ole, and he is trustworthy played by Trond Høvik (remember him from for instance "En helt vanlig dag på jobben" from 2010 and “Alt for Egil” from 2004?). The film is current and contemporary in every way - both thematically and productionwise. And although it has the serious and dark theme of poverty, humanity and humoristic spirit define the film. A must see from director Farzad Samsami. Produced by Trude Refsahl and Njaal Lambrechts. Post produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen and Hocus Focus: Edited by Thomas Løvig, grading by Mathias Theissen and online/VFX by Zoltan Farkas. Sound design by Lydhodene.
