Erlend Loe at the Nordic Film Winter festival

The literary campaign #ReadNordic and the Nordic Film Club invite you to the Nordic Film Winter festival which this year focuses on film adaptations of literary works.

The festival will present several films related to the popular Norwegian author and screenwriter Erlend Loe who accepted our invitation and will open the festival. He became popular especially thanks to his simple style and typical humor which is at the same time also a tool for addressing more serious topics. His most famous novel is undoubtedly Doppler, about a man who is fed up with his respectable family life and sets off for woods north of Oslo, other books available in Czech translation are for example Naive.Super and Facts About Finland. You will have a chance to see films based on Loe’s books (Gone with the Woman) or screenplays (North, Detector, Just Another Day at the Office).

An hour-long discussion with the author about his books, film adaptations, and writing screenplays will take place on Monday 15. 2. after screening of the film Gone with the Woman. The discussion will be moderated by Robert Novotný.
