NYC Premiere—Autumn Fall is a dramatic comedy set in beautiful Oslo. Ingvild works as a lighting technician at the National Theatre, but dreams of writing for the stage. She can’t stand actors, however, she still manages to entangle herself with two thespians—Jeppe is a well-known hell raiser, getting on in years, and Hans is a promising young talent, albeit rather mild mannered. Ingvild embarks on an exciting, scandalous, and ultimately very dangerous journey that changes her life forever. Directed by Jan Vardøen (Norway, 2015).
“Autumn Fall is a film about live, art and, perhaps first and foremost—the art of living”—Aksel Kielland, Dagbladet
“A lovely little film about big things. It is a relaxing and moving depiction of an unusual relationship, with Oslo as the almost unexpected beautiful backdrop.”—Birger Vestmo, NRK
