Norway's Bergen International Film Festival (Oct16-21) will see the world premiere of highly anticipated local documentary, Gunnar Hall Jensen's Gunnar Goes Comfortable.
The Bergen-based filmmaker's highly autobiographical documentary has been much talked about since an incomplete version won the Swedish Film Institute's Documentary Award back in 2002.
It follows Jensen who travels the world to find out why his own personality seems to make life to uncomfortable. The director's feature debut is produced by Elin Sander for local outfit Agitator.
Bergen will also screen 110 other features such as Cannes winner Elephant, Venice's Zatoichi and Toronto's In the Cut to Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill - Vil.1 and Robert Rodriguez' Once Upon A Time In Mexico.
The festival's Frontiers of Cinema sidebar will focus on sex (last year it was violence) with screenings of films like Claes Lilja's Beyond Vanilla and documentary hits Capturing The Friedmans and A History of Sex.
Other international hits screening at the event include Ferzan Ozpetek's Facing Windows, Robert Benton's The Human Stain, James Ivory's Le Divorce, Sang-Soo Im's A Good Lawyer's Wife, Andrew Lau and Alan Mak's Infernal Affairs, Mikael Haafstroem's Evil, Christoffer Boe's Reconstruction and Aisling Walsh's A Song For A Raggy Boy.
