DIRECTOR: Jannicke Systad Jacobsen - NORWAY

Only a woman could tell this wry, astonishingly candid tale of a teenage girl with an unbridled sexual appetite. Fifteen-year-old Alma is consumed by her out-of-control hormones and fantasies that range from sweetly romantic images of Artur, the boyfriend she yearns for, to down-and-dirty daydreams about practically everybody she lays eyes on. Alma and her best friend Saralou live in an insufferably boring little town in the hinterlands of Norway. After Alma has a highly perplexing encounter with Artur, she makes the mistake of telling her incredulous friends, who ostracize her at school. At home, Alma’s mother is overwhelmed and embarrassed by her daughter’s extravagant phone sex bills and constant self-gratification. Throughout, Jacobsen renders the complexities of Alma’s burgeoning sexuality and loneliness with a compassion and frankness that ring true. (76 mins.)

First Feature.
