Nelly will be giving a talk as part of the All Borders are Temporary program in Olso following a screening of The International Space Orchestra feature film, which she also directed. This will also be screened in Trondheim, Oslo and Tromsø between 3-17 April as part of the program curated by Brynjar Berkem and produced by Transnational Arts Production (TrAP) .
All Borders are Temporary program is based in our seasonal theme, how all borders are temporary. The films are about having a dream and the challenges that need to be solved trying to achieve it. The dream of a better and alternate future is something we all have in common, and cannot be controlled or owned by the few.
