Morgenrøde [2014]

MORGENRØDE (DAWN) takes place at the beginning of a new aeon, in a water polluted world years after a global fall. Where the legacy of what was, has been quenched and world understanding must take shape again.

Surrounded by an endless hazy and drab, bleak desert we follow two survivors who eye each other with the same mutual depraved suspicion as they contemplate their inhospitable surroundings. MORGENRØDE (aka. DAWN) is a mythological chamber play about faith, the beyond and the struggle against dehydration, in the wide-open, post-apocalyptic landscape. Told with two actors, sparse dialogue and hauntingly hypnotic cinematography. Featuring Ingar Helge Gimle and Torstein Bjørklund.

Press Quotes:

– “…beautiful, hypnotizing and unique”
– “…stunning cinematography”
Spektakulärt, Peter Öberg

– “5/6”
– “Morgenrøde is an aesthetic pleasure […], MORGENRØDE is thought provoking – an aesthetically and philosophically challenging experience.”
Tor Martin Årseth, CINERAMA.no

– “Tense, ritualistic, and gritty…”
– “Morgenrøde is a realistic science fiction film that creates a sense of beauty through isolation, and shows that cinema can indeed be used for works of art.”
Emma Robinson, Cinema Scandinavia

– “Anders Elsrud Hultgreen has made what can only be described as the most artistically ambitious Norwegian sci-fi film ever.”
Festival guide of Bergen International Film Festival

– “Morgenrøde makes Norwegian film more intriguing.”
Einar Gulvog Staalesen, Mørkets Opplevelser, P2 NRK Radio

– “…little the universe connects us to our own world. The story could therefore take place on another planet or in another dimension or simply being a story ethereal philosophical laid.”
– “Hauntingly impressive scenery…”
Christophe Lemonnier, DevilDead.com
