March 15 2021

The Art of Whistling: A Portrait of Thorvald Steen is a filmatic masterpiece by the well known artist and photographer Per Maning, music composed by Nils Petter Molvær. This filmatic jewel will be released in August, at the Haugesund International Film Festival.

Thorvald Steen is one of Norway’s most signifcant and beloved authors. His novels raise acute issues about identity and disability, belonging and the shameful positon of the disabled, the outsiders. Steen fuses personal history with political and individual psychology in a deeply respectful way, with dignity and humour. Enjoy a glimpse of the portrait!
